What I like about wine:

I love the fact that wine blends history, biology, chemistry, marketing and pleasure into a compact bottle. As the director of Education & Content for Wine.com, I love to teach wine & share wine - there is always something new to learn.

    Zocker Paragon Vineyard Gruner Veltliner 2013
    $20.00 $17.99
    Save $2.01 (10%)
    Style: Light & Crisp
    Pair with: seafood, shellfish
    Lovely! You want to keep sipping this. Has the typical white pepper notes, loads of minerality, a slight tropical note on the finish, but super refreshing and hard to put down. For this price it's a staple in the cellar.

    Style: Big & Bold
    A beautiful balance of old world and new world Barolo styles. Classic red and black fruits, rose petals, licorice, dried herbs and cocoa in the nose. The palate is elegant but with a plush texture, in some sort of perfect structural balance. So much going on, and a cry for food on this one, as it would benefit from something slow roasted....

    Cabreo Il Borgo 2011
    $60.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    A steal for those who want a stylish, age-worthy, structured and quality-driven Super Tuscan. The Il Borgo offers rich, ripe fruit, oak spice, mineral, licorice and floral components, a fleshy mouthfeel backed by sturdy tannins. Super long finish. Would love to taste in 10 years!
