Here, wine experts reveal their favorite bottles costing less than $17. Many of the selections are lesser known but absolutely worth the search.

Who: Mark Wrobel, beverage buyer and educator at Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine and Bar Pastoral in Chicago

Why: "Erau is a great introduction to the lighter side of Cabernet Sauvignon," says Mark Wrobel. While the wine is brimming with the red currant and black cherry flavors that are normally associated with Cab, this wine also has savory notes and bright acidity. All of this and it's organically farmed.
