I found two really good wines in the past week that are at a really nice price….here are two reviews I did on those wines.

  • Here is a review on a Rioja Crianza I tried at a recent wine tasting at Riverside Wine….I really enjoyed a bottle of it this past weekend. $14 at Riverside Wine.
  • Here’s a wine review I did on a really great French wine from the Cotes De Gascogne. You can pick this wine up at The Wine Shop for $9.99….yes your read that right.  It’s probably the best wine I’ve ever had that’s under $10.
