Château Vincens Origine 2012, Cahors A.C., France: A full-bodied southern French red wine from the region of Cahors, with mocha-dark chocolate aromas from oak aging, and fleshy black fruit. Great for pizza. Finishes with dark spices. Pair with meat lovers' pizza tonight. This robust Cahors red wine almost has some leanings toward Californian Zinfandel, but still is dark and smoky in a Cahors sort of way. Densely tannic and brooding: decant for 2 hours. Concentrated, powerful and highly extracted in flavour and colour. Drink: 2015-2019. 343400 14.50% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 90/100. August 22, 2015 Best Value Red Wine. Best Beef Wine Full Review

This full-bodied and delicious Australian red wine blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre (GSM). Aromas of fleshy black plum and berry. Round and smooth and mouth-filling. Portions of these grapes grow on some of the Barossa Valley's oldest vines. Pair with a pepper steak. Drink: 2015-2019. 90241 14% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100.
