  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • Yes, the Monte Bello was 2012.  2007 was a great vintage, and well worth a purchase if still in stock at the old exchange rate.  '10 was a vintage that worried a lot of growers/makers, including some of my old reliables (Bell, Talty), but Parker and WS went ape for it.  Selection was the key--raisined grapes from the heat spike didn't make it in...

  • Bell Wine Cellars Claret 2008


    Dark purple color. Oaky vanilla bouquet. Lightish black fruit on entry. Vanilla pops up, again, in the mid-palate. Apparent, but not obnoxious tannin. Same for acid. Fairly lengthy aftertaste. A full-bodied wine, but, because of the light touch of many of the flavors, a wine that is easy to drink without accompaniment. Read More
