Boom Boom Syrah



These award-winning wines from Walla Walla, Wash.-based Charles Smith Wines pack a lot of personality into their whimsically decorated bottles. The label's popular series of five varietals -- from the rich and spicy "Boom Boom Syrah" to the crisp Eve Chardonnay -- sell for under $20. Thanks to Emily Wines, Kimpton Hotels' master sommelier, for the recommendation. (509) 526-5230;
