Bodegas Ego 'Fuerza' Red Blend 2015
solid monastrell blend
I'm partial to Monastrell, especially from Jumilla.....haven't had one I didn't like....although a blend, this is another strong choice....good value......goes well with Italian food in a pinch.

Lobster Reef Sauvignon Blanc 2015
good value sauvignon blanc
I've had several bottles of this and enjoy its consistent flavor. For the money, the Kiwi's have a hit.

Chateau La Dame Blanche Bordeaux White 2011

Chateau Simard St Emilion 2004
ready for prime time
a little aeration helps...big hit at dinner, better with veggies, onion soup and salad than with fish....probably best with meat, but we don't eat meat.
