Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

For Pete's Sake

We don't know if there is a Pete, or if there ever was a Pete, but Pete's supermarkets are great places to buy Champagne, from Roederer Estate to Crystal. No, they did not pay us for this plug. Look for their sales, especially before New Year's and in June.

Larry's is running specials Nov. 9-29. A great way to stock up on wine for Thanksgiving. Roederer Estate Brut, on sale at $16, goes great with Turkey, actually, with just about anything, or all by itself. Old standby, Barnard Griffin Chardonnay at $8 is a great buy. L'Ecole 2003 Syrah is a delicious wine that will go surpisingly well with traditional Thanksgiving fare and it is one third off at $20.

What else goes with the infamous bird - Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling. Chardonnay works - look for Coppola or Edna Valley on sale at supermarkets or Costco.
