New Post...Same Great Old Wine at Recession Prices

As the days of summer begin to "wine" down, we must raise our glasses for a tasty fall season.

Let's start out in the valleys of the Alexander, or better known as the Alexander Valley Sonoma County, where we find the Chateau Souverain Cabernet Sauvignon 2005.

It's rich and powerful with touches of dark cherry and plum. Drink while enjoying a tasty medium rare steak. Can't go wrong with it.

Price: $12-$16 range.

We now travel South to the land of Argentina, where wine and meat are never understated.

This is where we find Finca El Portillo Malbec 2005. It's deep and pure with toasty notes and oakiness.
Full of body and dark notes. Tasty!
Price range: $12-$14

Our final destination today takes us back to California for Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel located in Alameda. It's described by many as "Zinfandel lover's paradise," due to its abundant production of Zinfandels.
This wine is not extravagant and/or bold. Rather a strawberry and fruity bouquet with a round finish.
Some blends of Petite Syrah and Carignane.
Price range: $15-$19
