Another Example of Why I Love Great Vintage Bordeaux

CIMG1864

I’ve written in other blogs about my philosophy of stocking up on Bordeaux in great vintage years. Top shelf Bordeaux from the classified growths is expensive in any year, and downright ridiculously priced in great vintage years, but there are hundreds of lesser known, unclassified chateaus that produce excellent wine – especially in great vintages.

Rioja in June – Two to Consider

CIMG1857

Over the past few weeks we have opened a few new wines, including the two riojas reviewed in this blog. Rioja is in my top five for wine regions of the world, and can produce unbelievably complex and age worthy reds. They also produce a lot of yummy values as well, and you can get

Wines of the Week, June 15-22, 2013

Here are two wines which provided some drinking pleasure over the last week. They both represent value, although I dare say one is a bit more in that category when you consider what we paid for it. Yes, we scored another ridiculous value at the Kingstown Liquor Mart. It’s rather dangerous that the store is

Wines of the Week – June 7-14, 2013

This week for your consideration there are two Cabernets, and both are worthy of buying. They’ll come in at different price points, and they are of different quality, but both are good and likely to get better. Here they are:

Visit to Sharpe Hill Vineyards in Pomfret, CT

This Saturday we went to Sharpe Hill Vineyards in Pomfret, CT. It’s been a long time since we last visited this winery. Back in 1999 I was finishing up my MBA and did an industry study of the New England wine industry for my major project. That of course entailed packing up the kids for

Wines of the Week – May 25-31, 2013

A few wines were consumed in May, and we’ll review two of them here. One is a sort of go to Rioja that sort of disappointed. The other is a low cost everyday value wine. The Rioja was pretty inexpensive as well, but it is not very good and therefore not a good value. Here
