    Little on the nose but fruit forward on the palate. Abundant red fruit on the palate with lots of acidity and light tannins. Great QPR on this wine. Get it while it lasts. Read More

  • After much agony and discernment, I have chosen the official wine for my Super Bowl party this year. Over the 9 years I've hosted this event, it is probably the least exotic selection, not to mention least expensive.  Given the fact chili is the main dish (oh please, don't turn your nose. After all, we're American pigskin fans, not Bolsheviks), ... Read More
