Santa Julia Mountain Red 2016 VERY PLEASANT SURPRISE
This wine was purchased as part of our annual March Wine Tasting celebration. After sampling, I remember thinking, "This must be the most expensive bottle in our collection (because) it is so good." When I checked our receipt, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was so inexpensive given its properties and high ratings. Buy it while you can and enjoy...

Bota Box 500ml Cabernet Sauvignon 500ml A GREAT SURPRISE
ALTHOUGH (OR BECAUSE ) THIS WINE COMES IN A RECYCLED BOX AND FROM THE ORGANIC EARTH I WAS AFRAID THAT ALL MY RED WINE STANDARDS WOULD HAVE TO SUFFER. QUITE THE CONTRARY. THIS WINE IS NOT ONLY HANDY (EACH EARTH BOX HAS 3 & 1/2 FULL GLASSES OF A VERY DELICIOUS RED SAVIGNON WHICH IS GREAT ON THE NOSE, TONGUE AND ULTIMATELY IN THE WONDERFUL FLAVOR THAT SHOULD COME FORTH FROM THE EARTH AND RECYCLED BACK IN. DO YOURSELF AND OUR PLANET A FAVOR AND TRY A CASE (RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE BUT RECEIVED ALL KINDS OF WINE AWARDS) AND SHARE WITH FRIENDS. THEY WILL SOON BE FANS.

Roederer Estate 'Anderson' Brut NV BETTER THAN DOM PERIGNON
I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO PREFERRED ROEDERER TO DOM PERIGNONG BUT FIND THAT THIS IS BECOMING MORE THE NORM NOW THAT MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE DISCOVERING AND ENJOYING ROEDERER WITH ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING OR EVEN ON ITS OWN. YOU WON'T BE SORRY YOU TRIED IT.

Hunt Country Vineyards Classic Red The BEST with EVERYTHING! NO SUBSTITUTE!
I have been to France, Italy, Australia, Napa Valley, the Finger Lakes as well as the Desmond and other local wine-tasting events and have NEVER found a wine that does it all. Wonderful bouquet, smooth on the tongue, no aftertaste of anything but bliss. You will want to get a case of this because you can enjoy it with everything and, of course, alone. Empire frequently runs out (it is THAT good) so get an account and order ahead. Trust me, you won't be sorry. Now I keep a bottle in the car. If the restaurant I am dining at does not have it on their wine list, I go out to the car and pay the corkage fee rather than substitute Anything else!!
