Recommended under-$20 wines for October


Oops, sorry I am late getting this up for October. This is the monthly posting formerly entitled "QPR Wines for (fil in the month)" . Please post up to 5 wines that you thought were a great value and feel others should look for. 1) I'd encourage each poster to limit themselves to one post of 5 or less value wines per month, to keep things from being dominated by a few. 2) Please just post the wines, with little commentary. This might be hard on verbose people like myself, but might encourage those who might otherwise be hesitant (if 7 people posted before you, each with detailed tasting notes, might not feel as comfortable just posting your wine). Certainly feel free to start a thread of your tasting impressions of any wine(s) and be as verbose as you want! 3) No bashing of others' suggestions. Let's try to be supportive as possible. It's fine to ask questions re wines you're interested in. 4) Please try to be sure that the wines you suggest are reasonably available (wines available at only at one store, that you bought 4 years ago, or only available at a winery is less valuable as a monthly resource) 5) There should be a 2 month limit on posting any wine. This will ensure the list is a bit fresher.
Looking forward to everyone's suggestions!

By definition many that I have tried are just as dry as a Chardonnay, Fume Blanc etc. Fruity, but dry.

We have been enjoying the 2003 Geyser Peak Cab (10 USD). Very nice Alexander Valley character, medium depth (not Parkered), enough structure to hold it together.
