Thanks everyone for the Kermit Lynch recommendation. I'm still a wine newbie of sorts and have trouble picking out good bottles. Basically I'm tired of cheap tasting wines and need to up the ante a bit. I just tried his entry level Vin de Pays de Vaucluse and it was extraordinary. It's better than any $10 bottle I've ever had. I will be actively seeking out his other imports. I also found an informative interview with Mr. Lynch here for those interested in the man behind the bottles.
