  • Ken Forrester Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Expect some earthy minerality mixed with tropical fruit and fig aromas. The wine exhibits complexity with ripe fruit and a crisp, dry finish of melon and pineapple. The slight acid makes this wine a good pair for fried fish or chicken. Read More

  • I'm just starting to try wine. Are there any good, non-expensive wines that are not too strong but will ease me into loving wine? I'm nervous on pairing the wrong foods that would ruin the wine. Read More

  • Ken Forrester Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch Petit 2008

    Snoothrank:

    A great bargain ($8-$9 in the D.C./Baltimore area) and very drinkable Chenin Blanc from South Africa's Stellenbosch region.The wine displays a pale white color and light body with citrus, limes and minerals on the nose. In the mouth the chalky minerality balances with moderate acidity for a soft feel, yet still up to fish on the grill, summer pa... Read More

  • Forrester Petit Rose 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I'm just starting to try reds. I prefer Reislings. I tried this Petit that I found in our local state store and loved it. I went back a month later to buy another bottle and they don't carry it. It was a collector's special. They buy a large quantity and when it's gone too bad. I finally found a red I liked and now I can't get it anymore. Read More
