Amazon's 19 Best Wines from 2015

Did you know that Amazon is a great place to buy wine? They have got a load of deals and savings on a seriously fabulous selection of wines. Since most of my online purchases are through Amazon {thank you 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime!} it was only inevitable that I start buying wine there too. Whether you enjoy bottles of wine that are $10 or over $100 - Amazon has you covered.

Although 2015 is over we can still enjoy the best wines of the year. Here are Amazon's 19 Best Wines from 2015, waiting to be poured in a glass and enjoyed!

2012 Boundary Breaks Vineyard Ovid Line North Finger Lakes Riesling
Flavors of juicy strawberry, mango, and honeysuckle. Tropical flavors of pineapple and grapefruit juice. Ovid Line North is a harmonious off-dry Riesling that drinks beautifully and crisply now and will continue to improve to a peak of tropical and honeyed fruits in five years with good cellaring.

Tess Red Wine Blend, Napa Valley
Tess is a delightful, refreshing wine that showcases the bright fruit of strawberry, raspberry and watermelon.

2011 Hedges Family Estate Red Mountain
Deep purple color, yet not opaque. A sense of finesse in the color which suggests liveliness on the palate. The mouth feel is angular, with grace and precision. The 2011 vintage produced a savory character in the wines, like that of fennel, salt, tar and steel. Highly integrated tannins, dusty in a sense, alongside protective acidity guarding against premature oxidation.

2012 FOXEN Chardonnay Tinaquaic Vineyard
You can practically smell the oak trees that grow around the vineyard. This wine is summer in a bottle, with aromas of white pear, pineapple, lemon curd, and toasty vanilla.

Amazon $40.00

2010 Iron Horse Vineyards Estate Russian Cuvee Sparkling Wine
