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.

    Chapoutier Crozes Hermitage La Petite Ruche Blanc 2011
    $32.00 $19.99
    Save $12.01 (38%)
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    deliciously fantastic. Rich yet bright, I love a good Rhone blend and this delivers tart peach, stony mineralty, backed by a rich texture. Great food wine (had it with rotisserie chicken and spiced green beans), but I'd happily sip it with appetizers or on its own at a party! great deal!

    Abadia Retuerta Seleccion Especial 2009
    $32.00 $26.65
    Save $5.35 (17%)
    Style: Big & Bold
    Rich, ripe - a big, modern style Ribera del Duero. Mulberry and blackberry and some spice flood the nose, almost Zinfandel style. Palate has good structure that reminds you you are in the old world and may want to put this down for a while. Nice finish. Guessing this would be a huge winner at any dinner party. But remember it needs food! and possibly some age.
