We have tight race here between three of the biggest players in the segment. Kendall-Jackson virtually created the idea of value Chardonnay, but will they be able to hold on or will one of the upstart challengers overtake them?
Now this is a surprise, an Australian showdown. While everyone was focused on Shiraz in the past, today's consumers know great values when they see them. These three producers hit it out of the park with their Grenache or Grenache-based blends.
Premium Pinot Noir
I love this matchup. It's a battle of styles with Oregon's light, red-fruited style, embodied by Erath, going up against the more powerful California Belle Glos, with Cambria trying to split the difference. Who is going to prove most popular?
I don't really care who wins this matchup, I just want to drink them all. Chevillon is a very strong performer and a producer I like to keep in my cellar, as are the other four leaders here. One interesting observation: Volnay is in third and fourth! Can either wine make a move to the outside and come up a dark horse winner? I love Volnay so I wouldn't complain!
Here, we have a bit of a mashup, with Petite Sirah taking on a Merlot and a Shiraz/Cabernet blend. Will the local boy from California hold off the Australian contenders? Can Petite Sirah finally come out on top?
