Top red wines under $25

James Halliday by James Halliday

From 278 wines submitted and 20 wines selected.

Lifting the price barrier to $25 had the desired effect, although the overall unequal split between red and white wines still meant that competition was fierce in each of the red wine sections. Shiraz stalks wines both under and over $25, but I somehow come up with a wider varietal representation than usual, and consequentially throw the geographic net far and wide. The run of good vintages has also helped.
