Ratings are a great, fast way to learn which wines are of the very highest quality. Anything over 90 is an achievement and is a wine to enjoy with pride. When you click on a wine, the rating appears just over the price, along with the initials of the individual who reviewed the wine. For instance, 93RP indicates a score of 93 as rated by Robert Parker. Have fun learning about ratings, and then order these wines yourself and learn why they received such remarkable scores!

92pts Parker One Of Parker’s Three Best Value Wines Of The Year

Known for their amazing use of the Monastrell grape, this wine is made from a blend of Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha. The 2013 Castano Solanera, a custom cuvee made for famed importer Eric Solomon, was given a 92 Point score by Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate, who's been "raving about value wines that emerge from Yecla in southeast Spain" for years! He noted that this release, in particular was "just amazing."
Even better is the 2013 Solanera is a “Vinas Viejas” that differs from the Castano (100% Monastrell), as this blend is 70% Monastrell, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15 % Grenache, aged 10 months in French and American oak. Another difference from the Hecula is that it was aged equal parts in tank and the other half in French oak. The Solanera, which comes from relatively high-altitude limestone soils at 900 meters, has a dense purple color, a big sweet kiss of blueberry and blackberry fruit mixed with crushed chalk, a full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity, density and richness. The oak is well concealed by the lavish fruit–the wine just amazing. Drink it over the next 2-3 years, as these powerhouses are best consumed in their exuberant and extroverted youth.

I had to rub my eyes when I saw how great the price was on this wine. I tasted yesterday and could not wait to get this email out to everyone. This is the ultimate summer sipper at a steal of a price with free shipping on a case. The wine got a huge 90pts by Parker’s WA, you save a huge 40% and yours for $11.99 a bottle (Reg Price $19.99). The wine come from the cool climate Leyda Valley in Chile that makes spectacular Sauvignon Blanc, fresh, crisp and alive.

The wine comes from the Graces Silva family project called Amayna that is making some of the greatest white wines in Chile. Leyda is a very dry region and water only arrived there to make wine in 1999. Vines have to fight to survive resulting in smaller grapes lower yields which make the finest quality wines. One of the modern super star winemakers of Europe Jean Michel Novell consults for the winery. For the money this wine gives you superb drinkability for summer and the finest quality. This will be my house white for summer. This wine will fly with the savings, the rating and the price. I strongly recommend, secure your case today. Only 56 cases at the price.

The 2013 Boya Sauvignon Blanc is a fresh, young, white with notes of, pineapple and papaya. Medium-bodied, with pungent, electric acidity, this white is very aromatic. Awesome citrus fruit jumps out of the glass with superb green apple and gooseberry. Here the clone is the Davis one mixed with a French one. Ideal for seafood or as an aperitif. Drink 2014-2016.

This Wine Is So Good At The Price Its Dangerous.

This wine comes from the highest altitude vineyards in the world, 5900 feet above sea level. The region is Salta right at the bottom of South Amrica in Argentina. This high desert region stresses the vines resulting in wines that have glorious concentration and rich flavors. This Malbec is ridiculously good for it’s price point. The 2015 Amalaya Malbec is brought to us by Donald Hess, the wealthy Swiss art collector has amassed a wine empire with owning vineyards and Wineries all over the world, from South Africa to South America to California. The name Hess has become synonymous with great wine and this Malbec is a value world-beater, drinking much more than its meager price. The wine has received huge press, a huge 94pts by Decanter, 91pts Parker and 90pts Spectator. Before its all gone grab yourself a case!

“The harvest of 2015 was a very good one - low rain and good sun during ripening, but with a few welcomed cloudy days to keep temperatures even. It is critical that we harvest at a good maturity but avoid sunburn or over-ripe characters. We add a touch of Tannat for its floral characters and good structure and Syrah for spice notes in the final blend. The final wine is intense and deep ruby in color, accented by purple hues. A bright nose of raspberries and strawberries, with notes of violet and white pepper is followed by black and blue fruit flavors with good complexity and excellent structure. This is a wine ready to enjoy.” Winemaker

"Impressive purity of perfumed fruits, with blackcurrants, boysenberries, cherries, plums and leafy notes. Very expressive mouth, full, juicy and fresh with polished fine tannins, high structure and pure black fruits. Refined, distinctive with a lovely personality." Decanter

‘The palate is medium-bodied with great freshness and intensity, terribly tasty. This is so easy to drink, it can be dangerous... One to buy by the case, and great for by-the-glass.’ Parkers WA

“A fleshy red, with concentrated blackberry and dried blueberry flavors supported by fresh acidity. Mineral and dark chocolate notes linger with hints of white pepper on the finish. Drink now through 2020” Wine Spectator
