---93 Points James Suckling
"With a wine history dating to 1385, Antinori has made this reliable Sangiovese and Bordeaux red blend since 1927, so its pedigree is not in question! Toasty oak melds into succulent cherry-berry fruit, with fine tannins and bright acidity to age well."
Ancient Peaks "Renegade" Red Blend $15.99 (reg. $19.99)
Renegade comes from Ancient Peaks' estate Margarita Vineyard on the historic Santa Margarita Ranch. From missionaries to gunslingers, rough riders to outlaws, a colorful cast of characters has traversed the ranch’s rugged terrain since the 18th century. In that spirit, Ancient Peaks has made an intensely flavored blend that pushes the envelope and resists conformity, adding an adventurous twist to the family of wines. Defiantly bold and daringly elegant—this is Renegade.

Brady Cabernet Sauvignon $15.99 (reg. $19.99)
The Brady Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is big and bold, featuring deep crimson color and aromas reminiscent of blackberry, black currant and cassis with subtle notes of roasted vanilla and spice. On tasting, it shows opulent silky texture and juicy berry and bramble flavors that echo the aromas with just a hint of velvety oak lengthening the finish.
