WINE on a dime.


If you know anything about a good wine it  doesn’t have to cost an ARM and a LEG or be vintage to be tasty.

In addition to the myth that twist top wines are “poor or bad” in taste, bogus. Here is a Rose’ to try    This blend of Sangiovese and Syrah is very dry, medium-bodied rose’ with attractive notes of raspberry and red currants.

  This Napa Valley find is another great one, 2008 Lail Vineyards Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon. A lush supple red with notes of currants and black cherry and fairly soft tannins.

When you are looking for something a bit on the crisp and refreshing side, try this       Champalou Vouvray La Cuvee des Fondraux, Loire, France label                       2010 Domaine Champalou Vouvray. This is a soft, slightly fruity, easy-to- enjoy sparkling wine.

Well enough reading between the wines with me, I now need a glass in my hand!

Although, Chardonnay is not my favorite, I had to include at least one 2009 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay2009 Chateau Montelena  Napa Valley Chardonnay . This is crisp and almost steely white – from an estate best known for Cabernet. It is a refreshing exception to the chardonnay’s cliche’ of  “buttery” taste.


Wine me up….
