  • I am a new wine lover. A year or two ago I was having troubles staying away from 'the sauce'.  It wasn't alcoholism, per se, but it was getting to the point where I was spending much of my money and getting very little done. So, being that I am working in a fine dining restaurant, Carnevor Steakhouse in Milwaukee, WI, I decided to begin studying... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Intoxicating aroma of honey baked apples and gasoline that is a beautiful expression of the NIagara grape. Unfortunately the aroma is the best aspect of this wine, which drinks more like an Italian pinot grigio with a slight bitterness on the finish. Still for a $7.99 wine, the aroma makes it all worth it. Read More
