A Couple of Performers at Price Point

I find myself doing wine reviews once every three weeks or so.  It’s not that I don’t drink more wine, I do.  It’s not that I don’t like writing tasting notes, I do.  It’s not that I like to torture myself with 700 - 1000 word blog posts everyday, I don’t (actually I am sort of masochistic like that, but I digress).  It’s, just, well, I kind of like to do wine reviews the same way I would give a personal recommendation for somebody—only selectively and only when I can really vouch for him or her.

Both the Macari and the Four Bears were received as trade samples and despite that peccadillo I can vouch for them.

“swhat I love about subjectivity. I found the Sette discombobulated, and the wood an interference.

That is interesting, Thomas.

I was pleasantly surprised.  I had much lower expectations and I found it to be a nice wine.  I’ll go one further and say I thought the oak was nicely integrated.

I would pay my own money for it ... that’s the best recommendation I can give.

Wine is about balance; no one element should be a star. The oak came right at me.

Then again, maybe in my dotage I’ve come not to like oak in wine.

I think I’ve actually reported here before that I consider the statement “I would pay my own money for it” to be the highest honor to something received gratis. Of course, this statement can only be trumped by actually seeing that that person has paid with their own money to have it again.
