GRAPE PRESS: Three Great (Value) Wines

from GBA

Here are three great wines that represent extraordinary value. The first is Sebastiani Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, a dark-fruited, full-bodied wine Parker rated at 90 points ("outstanding"). He called it "an amazing value" and said it would last, like most $150 bottles from Sonoma and Napa, 15 or more years. We've seen it for less than $11. Vignerons de l'ile de Beaute Corse XX270 2013 is a magnificent French Syrah that Wine Advocate reviewer (and former Rhone Report publisher) Jeff Dunnick lauded with 93 points. He described it as having "an inky purple color to go with incredible granite influence in its liquid rock, blackberry, raspberry, floral and peppery bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, with incredible purity, this is a seriously elegant, classically styled Syrah to drink over the coming decade." The price — as low as $16/bottle — is almost an insult. Finally, our very favorite bottle of tawny port, that rivals just about anyone's. (We tasted head to head with a vintage tawny port costing $150/bottle; this was better.) Its name is Hardy's Whiskers Blake. The price is about $9/bottle. We’ve seen it rated as high as 95 points. more
