Only 9.99 at Astor Wines in NYC, a fantastic example of tempranillo that I always recommend to friends who aren't familiar with this grape. Earthy, spicy and full of dark cherry.

Love this wine. Food friendly; versatile. One of the most intriguing, well-balanced Pinot Noirs out there for the price point. Hidden secret is that MS Emmanuel Kemiji and his UC Davis roommate and talented winemaker/vineyard mgr, Byron Kosuge, are in ...
|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco » Alba » Barbera d'Alba|
This is a very good Barbera. Nice acidity and the tannins have been toned down a bit by the oaking. While many wineries have not decided to oak their barbera wines, this wine is a great example of what you can get in an oaked barbera. This wine cost...

Well, this is a first! Having a wine blog I routinely place photos of the wines I try on the blog, and then maybe 3-4 times a year I post the reviews to Snooth, just to share with other fans (I guess I have enough to do to actually write the reviews a...
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Pomerol|
I found this one currently at K & L wines for $29.99 Tight out of the bottle, nose of red fruits, spice, oak, with good acidity and tannins. After decanting for 2+ hours this wine really opened up, and started to show off its class and elegance. It ...

This was an old soldier I opened on my 50th Birthday this week. It was a 1992, and reminded me of times gone by since the day I first tasted the wine. 1992 upon release was considered "vintage of the decade" before the 94's or 97's or 99's were rele...

What more can be said about this Estate that has not already been written... "The ’99 Montecalvi is rather different in its sensory characteristics from the two preceding vintages, although it nearly repeated the Three Glasses exploit of the ’98. Th...
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Premières Côtes de Blaye|
A nice, concentrated wine with some firm tannins, dark fruits, spice, fairly balanced, a bit new world and unexpected, but very seductive and rather splendid. Excellent Value. Purchased at Astor Wines, NYC for $9.99 One of the best values of the decade!
|Region:||USA » California » San Joaquin County » Lodi|
A Naked Wines Selection. Deep and Dark in the Glass. Opens with Spearmint, Mint, and Ripe Cherries. then to a bit of Cola, Vanilla, and Earth. Bit of an alcohol bite, but Oak & Cedar, Roasted Green Chile and Paprika. A noticeable Sandalwood scents. Lo...
We haven't had the pleasure of tasting this wine yet, but here is Parker's review: "This estate was justifiably elevated to a Premier Grand Cru Classe in the new St.-Emilion classification thanks to the exceptional efforts of proprietress Christine ...

A couple of ways to look at this pre-Christmas offer:1) why spend any money on Napa reds when you can get these bottles, aged for you already, at these prices?2) you can put together your own Produttori del Barbaresco verticals that'd knock the socks off the Valkyrie serving wenches pouring at the tables in Valhalla. Barbaresco from the Big Cel... Read More
Finding myself a little more curious as to what's going on at this price point lately, with neighbors looking to me for advice, and I did hear BLM's call recently as well.So two regions came to mind, not only for reasonable pricing, but for good overall quality potential. The Languedoc in the South of France, and Etna Rosso from the volcanic soi... Read More
Started with the two champagnes, and white burgundies. The White Burgundy flight was spectacular! As were the food pairings...Simple Pizza/Pancake for the Champagne - Clos des GoissesSome Salmon sashimi w/ the 66' Bollinger. Some life left, but it was a case of the 99' Clos des Goisses being a little young, and the 66' Bollinger a little too old... Read More

EM - Yes, the self-imposed wine-buying moratorium is not in effect when my spousal unit is with me. Maybe I should drag her over to Total Wine since I have another 20% discount coupon.Another busy weekend; we attended a double opera last night (The Seven Deadly Sins & Pagliacci) at George Mason University, but prior to that we dined at The Wine...

Thanks for the update with regard to the Finger Lakes region. When I want a decent tasting wine for a low price, I look for the Spanish wines in the wine shop. I haven't had good luck with Trader Joe's lately. I tasted this $6.99 Trader Joe special a few nights ago and it was horrible. My wife tasted it and agreed. I poured the remaining 3/... Read More
Hi Folks!This site was really great several years ago helping me track down Corsican reds here in NYC (I'm in Staten Island.) Many of my friends, and myself included, are interested in very good wines (mostly reds) at the lowest possible price. There really are many such wines out there if you look hard enough! For example, several years ago a ... Read More
Another recent Naked Wines selection. Semi-opaque Purple Red in the Glass. Opens with sweet ripe Cherry & 5 Spice; then a bit of Boysenberry/Cherry/Cola; then more Cherry preserves; finally dark herb roasted Cherries and peppered spices. Very smooth and soft mouthful with loads of the Cherry carrying over to the palate - then a blast of Cedar, a... Read More
A recent Naked Wines selection - Dark opaque purple red in the glass. Opens with Red Bell Pepper and Chile; Roasted Plum Pepper; Plum Cola; finally Mint, Herb, and roasted Plum. Minimum Tannins and Acidity (would have loved to have seen some), just a big smooth mouthful. with a long finish of Peppercorn, Spices, and Cola. Very smooth drinking fo... Read More
Yet another example of how Italian wines--even Baroli--can provide relatively great value. Anyone care to guess what a similar lineup of 1961 Bordeaux would be going for?If I were anywhere near NYC on Nov. 1, I'd be at that dinner... Barolo + Barbaresco 19641964 is considered one of a few really great Piemonte vintages – an “Annata Eccezionale” ... Read More
