The Paring 2012 Red Blend $24.99

This past weekend I tried a very nice value wine..The Paring 2012 brought to you by the makers of Jonata, (Screaming Eagle). It's a value bc of the quality.53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot Aged/French oak Winemaker's Notes: Dark and brooding cabernet sauvignon-based beauty. Gobs of smoky black fruit. Dusty herbal notes emerge with air. Remarkably powerful fruit on the attack followed closely by massive structure. Ample fine-grained tannins

Value Alert! Dona Paula Black Edition Red wine 2013

Ok,ok....I know it's been awhile, but it's also been a long time since a really good wine for a great price has come to my attention. The Dona Paula Black Edition 2013 Red is a blend of 60% Malbec, 37% Cab, and 3% Petit Verdot. James Suckling from Wine Spectator gives it 90 pts and I agree. Great balance, smooth tannins, and a smooth finish. $9.99 #binnys#stockup#redwine#valuewine#redblend#malbec

Binny's Value Red: 92 WA rating 85% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano $11.99

I'll start by saying I've already purchased 3 bottles of this, and can't keep it in stock. Bodegas Abanico Hazana Vinas Viejas 2012. R.Parker said it tastes like a $35-40 bottle, and I'd say he's pretty spot on. Good luck at finding this at Binny's or wherever you shop. If you are a Tempranillo fan, I'd recommend a case of this stuff won't disappoint for any occasion @ $11.99/bottle.#binnys#redwine#tempranillo

2011 Rutherford Cabernet

Another solid effort checking in from Napa Valley is the Rutherford 2011 Cabernet. The producer states: "Fragrant boysenberry, currant, spearmint and dried herbs. Rich flavors of currant, boysenberry and caramel". I think it is a solidly balanced Napa Cab that is a good value for the price. Currently $14.99 at Binny's. #redwine#cabernet#binnys

I've been meaning to mention this 2010 VALUE CAB for a month now! The 2010 Columbia Crest H3 (Horse Heaven Hills). It's listed for $11.99 at most places, and for the price I "just can't get enough"....ok ok so I liked Depeche Mode at one point in my life...Anyway, this wine is widely available, but I would still stock up for all occasions. Smooth tannins, good concentration, 90 pt WS rating...Need I say more? #H3#ColumbiaCrest#redwine
