2020 Highlands 41 Black Granite Red...$13.99
#1 TOP 100 BEST BUY 2022

35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Zinfandel, 15% Merlot, 15% Petite Sirah, 5% Syrah
This is a rather meaty, substantial wine for a fair price. Aromas of boysenberry, elderberry, roast beef and violet lead into a thick palate of cassis, more violet and pleasant mocha touches.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Enthusiast

2020 Slam Dunk Red Blend...$13.99
58% Petite Sirah, 42% Zinfandel

Pure sun-ripened lusciousness, Slam Dunk showcases all the power and structure California has to offer. This lush, mega-hit blend knows how to turn up the volume!
Deep, dense and plush, the 2020 SLAM DUNK is inky black in color and filled with aromas of dark plum, violet, shaved cocoa and black pepper. The mouthfeel is packed with sweet black cherry, cinnamon, and espresso. Long and persistent on the finish, the wine shows rich, polished tannins and an opulent core of soft vanilla oak.
This mountain of flavor is designed to accentuate every “slam dunk” moment.

2020 Quilt Napa Valley Red Blend...$33.99
compare to $34.99 at Total Wine and More
Winemaker Joseph Wagner (yes, of Caymus)

A sturdy, inky blend of Petite Sirah, Merlot, Zinfandel, and Petit Verdot, with scents of licorice, tarry plum, and tobacco. Creamy and deeply shadowed with cigar leaf and mountain brush that plays to a smoky side. Juicy black fruit sweetens the palate while espresso, grilled meat, and cedar add to the dense pattern of power and grace.

2020 Leaping Horse Red Blend...$10.99
Red blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah
Don't look before you leap. Pair your favorite dish with the perfect wine and step out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary. Live higher. Begin your adventure with Leaping Horse.
A leap into this gorgeous red blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah will delight your senses. From the dark red purple color and deep perfume of baked fruit pie and dark fruits you will journey into notes of jam and butter on warm toast ending in a balanced and beautiful full finish. A complement to any barbecue, especially one that includes steaks, chicken, and port or hearty pasta dish filled with fresh vegetables.

Marietta OVR Old Vine Red Lot 73....$14.99
Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Carignan and Barbera
The NV OVR Lot 73 is composed mainly of Zinfandel with smaller portions of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Carignan and Barbera. Medium ruby, it offers intense red cherry, blood orange and apricot perfume with accents of rooibos tea leaves, red licorice, saline, lilac and loads of spicy nuances. The medium-bodied palate is light on its feet with soft tannins, bursts of refreshing acidity and detailed amaro accents on the long finish. This is so easy to drink!
Rated 95/100 The Wine Advocate

2020 Oak Ridge Winery OZV Zinfandel...$11.99
85% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
An earthy, doughy aroma shows how fresh this wine is, before revealing layered, indulgent flavors of raspberry syrup, blackberry jam and dark chocolate that coat the mouth. With a full body, smooth texture and lingering finish, it's easy to love.
