"Look for the 2005 Little Penguin Shiraz ($8), a bright, fruity wine with plenty of berry flavors and a hint of white pepper."

"Surprisingly well-made, inexpensive merlot with blueberry flavors that aren't overwhelming. If you sniff carefully, there's a bit of cola in the aroma. Drink this with backyard barbecue."
