Wine Watch

I am an avid wine drinker and thought it would be interesting to have a wine section on the blog. I love finding great deals on wine and feel that great wines can be found for under $10. Here are a couple of really good wines I picked up at the local grocery store here in LA:

Nobilo - Sauvignon Blanc 2006 - Reginal Collection - Marlborough, New Zealand. The grocery store sommelier recommended this one, it was on sale for $8.99. If you like Sauvignon Blanc this is a great little wine. Light, refreshing and crisp - it has the most amazing fragrance of passion fruit. The texture is very light and drinkable with flavors of lemongrass, grapefruit and passion fruit. Very tropical and great for a hot summer's day.

Hunters Grove - Chardonnay 2005 - Napa Valley, California. A robust Chardonnay I found on sale for $9.99. Full bodied and refreshing. It has a fragrance of apples and pears and flavors of apple, pear and creme brulee. It is creamy and finishes with a light citrus note.

I'm alway looking for recommendations, please leave yours in the comments section!

You should go to Silverlake Wine(s) on Glendale Blvd.-- I have found that the best wines that I have had this year have been betw. $10/$15 and have come from there. Be sure to talk to the man with the grey hair and NOT the man with the curly dark hair. One of them knows everything and the other knows absolutely nothing. Good Luck!
