Burgundy in 2012 are the way to go for two reasons. They provide some of the best QPR in white and red Burgundy I have tasted in a long time, plus they are more available than Chambolle-Musigny or Vosne-Romanee as everybody wants them. I did work when I was there and locked up many many allocations.

…wines are so inexpensive and great. Young and old these wines are some of the highest quality best QPR's in the Mosel, but because he is in Krov and has vineyards like Krover Paradies or Krover Letterlay which if they were in the Middle Mosel near Graach and Wehlen would be more famous and sold out upon release. But that is not the case and the consumer benefits from it.

A real winner on the QPR. Currant and ash on the nose, with tart raspberry flavors and firm tannins. Long tannic finish. Delicious pizza wine.

Castellina, Chianti DOCG

90% Sangiovese, 10% Other Red Grapes

$ 12, 13.5% abv.

Blackberry aromas, with a little coffee and spice underneath. Firm tannins and a long finish, and a wine that benefits from decanting or breathing.

…acidity and dancing aromas of oysters shells and the beach. I must have expressed my amazement at the QPR on her, out loud, a few times. She drank quite nicely too, with clean lines, a depth of flavor, and an extended finish that many SBs 3X her price would be envious of.

The pinot noir, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon were similar in experience. I found them agreeable for a sub $ 20 wine, especially at $ 10, but they did not wow me. All three benefitted from extended aeration prior to …

N/ What dominates her nose is salty toast, truly. She also has pineapple, lemon, and yellow tropical fruits with a bit of oyster shell / minerality mix.

T/ Light to medium mouthfeel. Dry and acid driven upon entry but she also delivers light cream. Pretty complex ride for nine dollars! As with her nose, salt, pineapple and toast points reign, but I also found hints of lemon and passion fruit.

Best one hour after opening. Solid QPR, but her nose needs a little work.

…served me fairly well. I love their selections overall and they seem to do a pretty decent job with QPR.

3.) Rose, which I tend to drink in spades in the summer months, also makes an excellent foil for the upcoming heavier holiday foods season.

4.) My photos definitely don't capture it, but the rose in the bottle has the prettiest pale pink color.

On the nose of the wine I found raspberry, cherry, white flowers, and apricot. The wine had a really floral and delicate nose. In the …

Red blends is a category of wines that tend to deliver exceptional QPR (quality/price ratio) these days, particularly if you're into Californian wines. And this is one of those wines.

Coastal Crush Red from Robert Mondavi Private Selection is a blend of 67% syrah, 24% merlot and 9% malbec. The grapes come from primarily Monterey County, but also from San Benito County, Paso Robles and Valley South. The wine saw 10 months in a combination of French and American

…and has been become a popular series featured at Israeli restaurants and for quality to price ratio ( QPR) value minded consumers. Attaching the name of the grower to the wine is the one way to use pride as a way of motivating a grower to nurture the best grapes possible for the wines those grapes are intended.
