…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.
The 2012 Binyamina Yogev Sauvignon Blanc/ Chardonnay is a dry white wine which is typical of these …
…jammy sipper that paired quite well with the lunch, and given the great price, this one has a great QPR and is highly recommended.
Earlier in the meal I opened up a pair of Tower 15 Winery .wines from
2012 15 Blanc
$ 19, 13.2% abv.
Loads of bright acidity here, with flavors of lemon and apricot. Nice crisp finish. Should be served with shellfish and salad.

Hard to argue with this producer in terms of delivering a good QPR. The wine is woolly, fresh, exciting, seems almost spiked with minerals, and generally kicks ass. It's also got an appealing story in terms of hailing from an Australian region that's still off of most people's wine loving radars.

…Earthy, minerally with chocolate-laced plummy fruit. Major structure which will make this astonishing QPR age better than Lil Kim.
Chateau Haut-Brion - Yes I know it is a first growth and it is hideously expensive but Haut Brion is the real deal. I've tasted a lot and it is amazingly consistent, unspoofed and in certain vintages like 1989 it can be the greatest wine in the world. The 1986 is my favorite funky Bordeaux ever made. Wine is an absolute freak show. The 1998 up until …
