Miraval Côtes du Provence ($25.99): Even though Brad and Angelina are splitting up their winery is still being run by the Perrin family, of Chateau de Beaucastel fame. The wine features scents of strawberries and white flowers. The palate is crisp and clean with more red fruit a touch of citrus and a little pepper leading into a refreshing mineral finish.
Cono Sur Sauvignon Blanc ($12.99): This winery is cleverly named Cono Sur, (Southern Cone) after the shape of South America as well as a play on the term connoisseur. The nose on this wine, made from organic grapes, shows stone fruits and lime. It is medium-bodied with more citrus followed by a slight saline and mineral finish.
Cono Sur ‘Bicicleta’ Pinot Noir ($9.99): This top value from Cono Sur shows bright red fruit on the nose. The palate shows incredible depth for a wine at this price point. Smoke, cherries and spice lead to a velvety soft finish.
Cono Sur Red Blend ($12.99): This full-bodied red blend is made from organically grown Cabernet, Carmenere, and Syrah. Aged partly in French oak, and partly in stainless steel, this offering delivers red fruit followed by integrated tannins and a smooth chocolate and tobacco finish.
