Baltimore (/ˈbɔːltɨˌmɔr/, colloquially /ˈbɔl.mɔr/) is the largest city in the U.S. state of Maryland and the 26th largest city in the country. It is located in the central area of the state along the tidal portion of the Patapsco River, an arm of the Chesapeake Bay. The independent city is often referred to as Baltimore City to distinguish it from surrounding Baltimore County. Founded in 1729, Baltimore is the second largest seaport in the Mid-Atlantic United States and is situated closer to Midwestern markets than any other major seaport on the East Coast. Baltimore's Inner Harbor was once the second leading port of entry for immigrants to the United States and a major manufacturing center.

    … was $38. I thought that was rather high for a wine with a score of 84/100. The price also reaffirmed my desire for cava. The cavas we tasted in the Penedés Alt region of Catalonia were every bit as pleasing at only a third of the cost. We tasted several of the cavas on the 2014 list of 50 Great Cavas. Of those a number were less than 10€ (less than $13) while others were less than 15€ (less than $20). Cheers, Terry …
