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.

San Francisco is a great place to buy wine. Beverage & More is a greater place to buy wine. You can get anything you want at BevMo, but twice a year they have their "5c sale." If you buy a bottle, you get a second bottle of the same wine for five cents, in effect, 50% off. This is one of those months. You can order online and have it shipped depending on where you live. Here are my recommendations:


1. 2006 Trinchero Chardonnay, California - fresh, dry, fruity, great value, drink now - $6

2. 2006 Hogue Fume Blanc, Washington - dry, but balanced, Sauvignon Blanc, drink now $4

3. 2006 Moulin Ferrand Entre Deux Mers, France - Dry, crisp, tart, with good body, great oyster wine, drink now - $6


1. 2006 Osborne Solaz, Merlot/Tempranillo, Spain - Delicious, fruity, Tempranillo with "training wheels," drink now - $5

2. 2006 Terra Brisa, Malbec, Argentina - excellent, good fruit, interesting Malbec flavors, drink now - $5

3. 2006 Serabel, Cotes du Rhones, France - light, fruity, easy, like Beaujolais, drink now -$5

4. 2005 Segonzac, Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux, France - Fantastic value, a full-fledged 2005 Bordeaux with great black fruit flavors and lots of tannin just as a good Bordeaux should be at this stage , definitely need to be laid down for several years. Buy a case and see how this wine develops over time. Start to drink 2009 - $10
