Here's a Cabernet Sauvignon that is affordable, and scoring high at a $14 price point.  These are the kind of wines I look for to buy by the case.  On Winex they're offering free shipping on a case order.  Great every day drinking wine and it'll lay down well for a few years too.  

I had the privilege a few weeks ago of tasting a 2004 Foxen Santa Rita Hills Pinot.   What is listed here is the 2013 Santa Maria Valley with a 94 point rating from .   They both come in at about the same price point, with the Santa Rita Hills being a couple dollars more.  I so loved the Santa Rita Hills Pinot, and I've been a fan of Santa Maria Pinots for quite some time, that I really, REALLY need to try this one.  Coming in at $28, rated at 94 points by Wine Enthusiast (awesome quality/price ratio!), with free shipping if you order 4, this is a totally "doable" buy.  I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.  Go in on a 4 pack with a friend!  And save it for a little more "up scale" meal.  You won't regret it.  *A caveat.  If you like bolder wines, you're a big Cab or big Zin fan, this wine might not be something your palate is used to.  However, it's the perfect pinot to stretch your tasting experience
