9/20/2021
Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc 2020-Everyday Sauv Blanc From Chile There ain't nothing wrong with a bottle of good everyday wine! I think making excellent value-priced wine is harder than making fancy wine where they spare no expense. And who does not like a good Sauvignon Blanc? It is one of the most consistently good-tasting White wines on the market. Check out www.cheapwinefinder.com and/or listen to the Podcast (I recommend doing both) to check out all the details.

Grifone Primitivo - Trader Joe's 5 Buck Fun Italian

9/15/2021
Grifone Primitivo - Trader Joe's 5 Buck Fun Italian $5 wine should not be drinkable. Especially when a part of that five dollars is used to ship the wine to America and then to a Trader Joe's near you. But the Grifone Primitivo 2020 drinks just fine; it is an enjoyable red wine. Primitivo and Zinfandel are both clones of an old grape from Croatia. Close but not the same. The Grifone Primitivo is sourced from Puglia in the heel of Italy's boot. It is way better than you would...

Gruet Sauvage Rosé- Excellent "No Dosage" Bubbly

9/13/2021
Gruet Sauvage Rosé- Excellent "No Dosage" Bubbly Bubbly Season is between Halloween and New Year's Eve. I think Bubbly is appropriate year-round, but the fact remains most Sparkling wine is purchased in the last 3 months of the year. This is a No Dosage Bubbly, meaning they did not add sweet wine when the 2nd fermentation was complete. The Gruet Sauvage Rosé- Excellent "No Dosage" Bubbly is bone dry!!!

Louis Jadot Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay- Drink Like The French

9/10/2021
Louis Jadot Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay- Drink Like The French This is a Burgundian Chardonnay from Louis Jadot, a producer in the wine business since the 1850s. The wine sells for around $13, less on sale, and they make enough to find this wine in grocery stores and wine shops. Even California Chardonnay producers look to Burgundy for inspiration, which is a wine that wine drinkers should experience. It is un-oaked, and it tastes great; I do not miss the oak influence at all. Check out...

Estancia Monterey Pinot Noir 2018- A Special Bargain Wine The Estancia is part of the huge wine brand sale between Constellation Brands and E & J Gallo. The sale was finalized in early 2021, and these 2018 vintage by the brands that were sold are sort of orphan wines. They will not fully be Gallo wine until the 2021 vintage, and they are no longer Constellation wines. A huge Chicago wine, beer, and spirits retailer Binny's seems to have the orphan wines at close-out prices. Check out...

Tailslide Pinot Noir 2019-$7 ALDI Pinot-Any Good?

Tailslide Pinot Noir 2019-$7 ALDI Pinot-Any Good? We are jaded. CWF is so used to Bang-For-Buck value-priced wines that a wine that delivers at its price point and no higher seems like a failure. But that is stinking thinking. I forgot where I got that from. A $6.99 Pinot Noir that rocks as a $6.99 Pinot Noir are fine. Not all wines have to eight bucks tastes like $15. Cheap wine has me jaded. A wine that is exactly what it is priced at is good. We are living in the golden age of...

Flora and Stone Merlot - The Return Of Merlot? This is a $6.99 non-vintage wine from ALDI. From 1990 to 2010, Merlot rivaled Cabernet Sauvignon as the top-selling Red wine in America. But that was then, and this is now. They grow more Pinot Gris/Grigio in California than Merlot (as of 2018) So, Merlot bargains can be had. Check out www.cheapwinefinder.com for all the details.
