    ugh.

    There is nothing wrong with Beaujolais Nouveau. Enjoy it for what it is.

    Im drinking way more wine than I am beer these days. A glass or two before bed has been my thing lately. Helps me sleep, and wine is just simply delicious.

    I've been grabbing a few bottles each week at Trader Joe's. I don't keep track of what I've had (like I do with beer) but I am doing pretty well at remembering what I've had just based off memory alone. Had a nice red wine the other night I got from Trader Joe's. Its out of Mendocino County and had a skeleton pirate on the artwork. Also had a red wine from Spain that wasn't bad, and just wrapped up a bottle of a Vaca Cabernet Sauvignon which might be the best wine I've ever had, simply due to the fact that you could really taste the barrel in this one.

    I've got an Italian red wine lined up next, and a bottle of something called Cabernet Franc?

    LOL. Napa cult wine prices are worse than Burgundy prices.

    I know you guys don't see much in paying the napa premiums but my wife and I have been enjoying William Hill Estates Chardonay's recently. They've come from a long way and now the 08 and 09 are really pretty tasty. They also had a Dijon clone that was pretty good.
    Another one to give a go is the Heitz Cellar 05 Cab. I really enjoyed it and it's consistently $30 at BevMo.

    The wines you mention are reasonably priced. I'm talking about Screaming Eagle prices over here.

    Australian Blend: Tait Ball Buster. It was recommended to me as a "big" wine. It certainly lived up to the billing. Great bang for your buck at $15.

    Anyone have any recommendations for BevMo's 5c wine sale? Wife likes Chardonnay, will sometimes go for Reisling (she's allergic to reds).
    Was hoping to pick something up for the weekend.
