Aren't you delighted when you can find a delicious wine under $20? Really, there's nothing better. I know this is the season of splurges, but sometimes your credit card (especially during the holiday season) deserves some respite.
I love a good Shiraz, and this one blew me away. It’s called Taltarni Shiraz, from Australia. Rich, fruity, full of raspberries and cherries, complete with smooth tannins - it's beautiful. I highly recommend it.
You can buy it straight from the vineyard for $17.
