Southern Rhone, tasty

January 28, 2009


Some notes on Southern Rhone, and a nice offering from Vacqueyras for a decent price!

Nebbiolo from.. Mexico?!

January 23, 2009


Nebbiolo hasn't been successfully cultivated outside of Piedmont with much success. So, when I was walking through the LCBO the other day looking for something interesting the LA Cetto 2003 Nebbiolo Reserve Privee caught my eye for two reasons. One, it's from Mexico. I don't think I've ever had a mexican wine! Second, it's a Nebbiolo from outside of Italy. Oh, and the best is #3 - under 20 bones.
