Notes:

  • Standard disclaimer: The Amarone, Caro, Ornellaia, and Viu Manent were gifts.
  • And as a friendly reminder, I work for a local wine/beer retail chain. This personal inventory is presented for entertainment purposes only. Opinions expressed here are my own and not those of my employer, but as you are not reading this on their web site, no endorsement should be inferred anyway. Just sayin’.
  • Once in a great while I will “take one for the team” and buy a forlorn and neglected wine to clear the rack. The Chateau Ste Michelle Cabernet wasn’t going to sell, ever, and rather than float it on the clearance cart I bought it to have a with a steak sometime.
  • Once in a great while another store will put something on clearance that I’m actually interested in drinking. Tom Thumb decided to mark their half bottles of Pouilly-Fuisse down so I figure now it the time to check it out.
  • The Lamura is loaded with black licorice notes, which normally isn’t my “thing”, but overall it was intriguing and I’m interested in $10-or-less Italian wines. I figure it was a welcome change over Ruffino Chianti.
  • Since I am drinking for one, I am a big fan of half bottles. I am looking forward to having the Ridge Zinfandel with a steak soon.

There’s lots of great wine out there… explore!
