Wine Reviews


Dear Readers,

I have been wanting to do a wine tasting here on the blog and write short, one paragraph reviews of the good wines I enjoy at home.  It's no secret to those who know me that I like to pair my dinners  with good wines several times a month, and that I have my opinions when it comes to them.  I'm no wine expert, but over the years I have come to trust my palate to guide me to good, decent wines and to steer clear of the ones that leave a bad taste in your mouth.  

This is what the parameters will be for my wine reviews so that you can better understand what I like.  

  • I will not present sweet wines because I don't like them.
  • I will review red, white, and rosé varieties as I see fit.
  • I won't write bad reviews, because it's not what I do here on this website.  Bad wines that I encounter won't make the cut.
  • I will stick to wines with an alcohol content between 12% and 14%.  These are the ones I prefer, because overly alcoholic wines aren't pleasant to me.
  • As to the grape varietal, I like a large spectrum of them and blends made with them, from around the world, so it will be a delicious odyssey of my preferences.
  • I'm not too fussy about having a particular wine glass for a certain varietal.  Don't be surprised if you see stemless glasses, goblets or antique glassware for these posts.
  • Wines that I review will not be more than $15 per bottle.  I have come to realize that it isn't necessary to spend a large amount of money to drink a wine that is quite decent and of good quality.

What I hope to do with these reviews is let you in on what we like here at home and have you try them for yourself.
