Happy Hour: 2007 Stephen Vincent Crimson

Not too long ago, I attended a wine tasting. Amidst a sea of Pinots and Zinfandels, I found myself drawn to an unassuming bottle: 2007 Stephen Vincent Crimson.

When I found out the price of this wine, which is made from grapes harvested in California's Central Coast, I was shocked. It tasted far more complex than its extremely affordable $10 price tag. Composed of 75 percent Syrah and 25 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, this lusty blend has room to age a few years, but is also ripe for enjoying now, with oak and lots of dark berry and cassis.

2007 Crimson's not easy to find, but it's one of those wine bargains that I'd go out of my way for. What are your favorite value wines?
