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.

Loire Valley Reds- Chinon and Bourgueil

These reds from the Loire Valley are usually great picks from a restaurant wine list as they are pretty consistently of high quality and are usually inexpensive. We recently tasted a Chinon in a San Francisco restaurant that was deliciously fruity and complex for only $26. Chinon and Bourgueil are made from Cabernet Franc in a range of styles from fresh and fruity, like the one we just tasted, to monsters that need to age for years. Kermit Lynch usually bring in a variety of these wines.
