Another value red from me, but one you might needlessly overlook.  This wine is a great blend of grapes and locations. 

Cab, Merlot and Cabernet Franc come together well in this wine and whether you are a novice or an expert you have to enjoy.  Throw a little chill on this and there is almost nothing on the dinner table that this will not pair with.  With flavors of blackberry, licorice and violet, it is lush and decadent- like all reds should be.
