...New American Value Reds

10 New American Value Reds

2007 Teira Sonoma County Merlot ($18)

Besides connections to top vineyards, Teira has a great asset in Bill Knuttel, founding winemaker of Saintsbury and current head winemaker at Dry Creek Vineyard. His expertise shows in wines like this spicy, elegant red.

This is my favorite wine under $20. Outstanding. Smooth to the last drop. I want some now.
