    Nuvino Wine Pouches

    While tasting the wines from Nuvino packaged in foil pouches, I did not think about Capri Sun as much as I did the space program, and how it felt like the kind of beverage packaging that one would need in zero gravity.

      Champs de Gaillard Red Bordeaux Blend – A Steal!

      CheapWineRatings.com - - 6 readers - I generally walk right past the Bordeaux section when I’m in a wine shop. It’s not that I don’t like Bordeaux, I just don’t like paying too much for my wine. But apparently I’ve been making a mistake and I’ve been missing out. There’s a lot of hype in the marketplace about Bordeaux. It’s been like that for years and has resulted in prices skyrocketing — particularly for some sought-after names.

      Wine Review: Weise and Krohn Valtorto 2011 Red Blend Douro

      Edible Arts - - 2 readers - I’m fascinated by the capacity of wine to evoke ideas and images. It is not true of every wine, but some have sufficient personality and character to send the mind traveling across worlds and through time.  Happily,these wines are not necessarily the most expensive. This red blend from Portugal’s Douro river valley is a perfect evocation of that region.

      2010 J. Lohr Cuvée Pau, Paso Robles

      …This Cabernet Sauvignon-based Bordeaux style red is dense and packed, with an opaque dark purple color that shows aromas of polished shoe leather, cedar, menthol, black plum, black raspberry, coffee, and mocha.
