  • Considering that a number of wines posted here at the same price point as this offering can be described as middling at best, this nebbiolo from the Piemontese hill country near the Valle d’Aosta looks like a steal.If I were in NYC I'd be going to the dinner. No matter what, this ain't same old, same old and is truly enticing. Obscure but with l... Read More

    Forum post in the topic What have you bought lately?


  • So, after saying I was going to wait, I ended up going to Total Wine this afternoon afterall.  I bought two nice wines - a nice Pira Barolo Vignarionda  that JD recommended (but I could only get the 2010, not the 2009 or 2011) and the one I really expect to enjoy, the 2000 Ch Brane Cantenac Margaux Bordeaux wine.  I was able to get 15% off the B...

  • EM - You seem to have quite an assortment of Bedrock wines in your cellar.  This one with it's tame tannin sounds tasty to me.  I'll assume it's gone now so I won't ask for a taste.Yesterday we were at The Kennedy Center again to see the Royal Swedish ballet performance of Ek's Juliet and Romeo; we also listened to the Earth Harp being played in...

  • Oscar Quevedo White 2015

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines selection. Bright Green Silver in the Glass. Opens with Cinnamon Lime; then a bit of Kiwi and Lime and unripe Melon and Green Apple, Slate, Pine, and Minerals. A very crisp and acidic mouthful with loads of Lime, Kiwi, and Green Apple. Very nice drinking. Though I had this alone and sipped it throughout the day, suspect that it wou... Read More

  • Duncan, I'm with Dave on this.  Yes, they have a monitoring agency, but that's also what the TTB is.  (Formerly part of ATF, but alcohol and firearms aren't a good mix.) Adulterating wine is older than regulating it, meaning the Europeans have lots of experience at it and are pretty good at it.  Rumor almost never go away that someone is putting... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Who Monitors Labels?


  • This morning I was pontificating in the coffee shop about wine bottle labeling.  My buddy, being the the ex-lawyer type, asked a lawyer question.  Who monitors this stuff?I then realized that I had never heard of anybody (OK, I'm talking domestically, here.) being accused of say:Labeling a bottle as "Cabernet Sauvignon" and, then, being caught f...

  • My two esteemed predecessors posting in this thread seem to have overlooked your mention of bubbly.You can do a *lot* worse than Schramsberg, and the blanc de blancs mentioned on this site at $27.99 is a good price, and would seem to match your budget. K&L wines ship most places and are extremely reliable, in my experience. You can find even che... Read More

Young,... Read More

  • EMARK - I DON'T KNOW THAT I'VE EVER BOUGHT A CASE OF WINE AT $3.99 A BOTTLE. MAYBE 25 YEARS AGO.  HOWEVER IF A PERSON BRINGS A BOTTLE OVER AND WANTS ME TO POUR IT....WELL, I WILL BE A GRACIOUS HOST AND DO SO.  MY WINE MOTTO (ONE OF THEM ANYWAY) IS THIS - "IF YOU ARE PROUD TO POUR IT...I'M HAPPY TO DRINK IT!"  DOESN'T MEAN THAT I ESPECIALLY LIKE ...
