Added Jun 29, 2010 at 3:18pm$3 a bottle at MN trader Joes, its $2 in California because of transportation cost. For a cheap Cabernet you CANNOT go wrong with this, this is personally my choice for using in Sangria. I make an effort to buy a bottle or two every time I stop by TJ's because its so affordable. Has a slightly oaked taste, a little acidic, and a mild tannin. More black currant flavor then any of the other fruits(blackberry, cherryish). My girl and I drank three bottles last night, so maybe that says a little something about myself. -Cheers.

Added Jun 29, 2010 at 3:14pmButtery, Slightly oaked, but Shaw does the process of using oak chips in say a large teabag, doesnt actually use oak barrels. This one is better then the american chardonnay they have.

Added Jun 29, 2010 at 3:11pmOne of the best wine's I tried in NZ, and probably the best Pinot Noir I also tried in this $40 price range. Full bodied, ranked as a five star Pinot Noir by critics in the area. Visited the Winery on a tour and it was the best Red of the day. Cheers to the owners. My year was 2006.

Added Jun 29, 2010 at 3:09pmOne of the most fabulous red's I have had recently, first time trying a touriga nacional. I think it cost me $14 which was a little spendy for me. Had a soft tannin overall and lower acidity then I excpected. Full bodies, full flavored, delicious grape.

Added Jun 29, 2010 at 2:46pmI enjoy Rieslings at all moments. This one was sweeter then the other dry Riesling Waimea had. It was not overly sweet though.

Added Jun 29, 2010 at 2:45pmI believe Olive Garden still carries this one. Was a rather delicious glass, lower on alcohol then I expected, but the peach/apple/pear flavors made this one tasty juice. Worth getting a glass at OG if you want light bubbly, I think I drank it when I got my salad. Cheers.

Added Jun 29, 2010 at 2:42pmExactly what you would expect from a dry Riesling. I was actually rather impressed to see this style of grape be so good in NZ. Not as sweet as you would expect, but was better then the other Riesling they had. 100% worth it if you like dryer Rieslings.
