Jim Olsen BX, California, 2012: An easy-to-drink red. The blend is made of some stronger-flavored reds, but it tasted very mild to me. Was better after being allowed to breathe. I wasn't crazy about it, but I'd give it another chance. The cost isn't too prohibitive, but in this price range, there are other wines that I enjoy more. ~$25
Viader Proprietary Red Blend, 2009: smooth, fruity aroma. Very bold top notes, lots of flavor complexity, but is very balanced between the top and the bottom. Finish is completely smooth and delicious even now, even though I got it over a week ago. A wine that is making me appreciate expensive wine. ~$118
Lakewood Vinyards 2010 Chardonnay - got this one because the bottle fit well in my hand, and the label was hilariously simple. It's an odd, flavorful dry white that really does taste like vanilla. After a chill, it had slightly nutty top notes, a creamy middle, and a sharp finish. A good beginner's wine, would definitely drink it again. ~$13
