Marietta Old Vine Red, Lot No. 27 ($12). Talk about a rut. I've been recommending this consistent champion value since its lot numbers were in single digits and the price was around $5. It's still one of California's greatest values, offering intense and lush blackberry, black currant, smoked meat and herbes de Provence flavors. Serve this wine with pizza, grilled steaks, pasta or lamb. Its versatility is equaled only by its burly charm.
