Here are three things you can search for on your wine label.
1. Varietal- Chardonnay, Cabernet, Merlot, etc. When it says this, the bottle has to be 75% of that varietal.
2. Where the wine has specifically has come from- Washington State, California, or even more specifically, Russian River...When you find something you really like, stay within that region and try some other varietals.
3. Look on the back to see the what is included...figs, blackberries, etc.
