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.

Wine of the Week - 2004 J.Vidal Cotes du Rhone

This wine is a great buy at $7 at Trader Joe's. It starts with great fruit, dried cherries, perhaps, and has a slightly tart finish. This is definitely a food wine and you know your not drinking a new world wine. This wine is not big and jammy, but it is not a lightweight either. It's kind of spunky and stays in your mouth for a long time after you swallow. Red meat, pasta, pizza, stew, BBQ.
