^ I don't know why I'd never searched for episodes of the original Iron Chef on youtube. Thank you--you have given me yet another reason to be utterly unproductive.

'04 Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Chardonnay - not awful. Didn't know what to expect from a white Burgundy, used to mostly new world whites.

There was more this weekend but you know how it is.

The PA wine stores were selling that Vina Eguia for $10 a bottle a while back. I thought it was a great deal; picked up a bunch when I was in charge of the wine for a potluck dinner.

Went to CostCo Friday and saw it for $8. Figured I'd pick up a bottle to try and if I liked head back and buy a few more. We'll buy at least six next weekend. Nice little food wine for a weekday.

I hear Costco actually stocks pretty good wines at great prices. True?

From the Houston Costco at Richmond and Weslayan



Is this a great price? I have no idea.

Nothing too remarkable on that list. Some big mainline stuff etc... all on the lighter side.

I will say, I have always found the Ruffino gold label very drinkable. Not remarkable but more than passable for a cheap eye-tal.

That Montepulciano should be on the spicy side.
post #15191 of 17488
I would go for Antinori.
post #15192 of 17488
Perfect, thanks! They have a list of Cali wines, but it is an Italian joint so I kind of want to go Italian for the wine. I am guessing they are on the lighter side because it is a place that specializes in Italian Seafood?

I don't know if I'd call any of those Chianti's "lighter". Certainly not the Amarone.

Isn't Nipozzano a Frescobaldi wine?
