Top Values from the 2012 Wine Spectator New World Grand Tasting

Many, many spectacular wines at this year's Grand Tasting.  In a sea of $100, $200, even $300+ wines, however, these wines (most to be had for about $50) stand out as great values that can go toe to toe with their triple digit counterparts.  Some on this list you may be familiar with and some may be new names but are sure not to stay that way.  While these aren't for everyday for most of us (myself included), all the wines on this list would make great special occasion wines that won't break the bank.

3. Col Solare Red Bordeaux Blend Columbia Valley (2007)

« Prev Next » 3 of 7
Previously available for $60.99
While I think I prefer the '06, the '07 is still a masterful wine from Col Solare. Assertive, ripe, and quite complex. Lots of blackberries, blackcurrents, with touches of vanilla and it finishes with chocolate-covered espresso beans.
