Stemmari Nero d’ Avola 2010

I came across this wine the other day and I figured I would give it a shot.  I always try to find deals on different brands of wine.  Stemmari Nero d’ Avola is a deep red color with hints of red berries but is also a dry wine.  While its easy to drink it really stands out with…

2009 Vinha do Monte

I will never forget what a wine expert told me once.  “You don’t need to have an expensive bottle of wine to have the best wine.”  A lot of people over look cheaper bottles of wine because they think they will taste bad.  But this not true.  You will be surprised at what you can find for…

Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir

I picked up a bottle of Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir the other day and for the price of 8.99 it was a great find.  The flavors and aromas of Vanilla, Black cherry, Spicy Oak and Plum are a great combanation.  Its smooth, light and lively to the palate.  Great with some bruschetta or a cheese platter and…

2008 Andeluna Cabernet Sauvignon

Some friends of ours actually brought this wine over one day and I have to say it’s got such a great taste.  It’s full of body and keeps your palette craving for more.  A very nice combination of black fruits and chocolate.  This wine is great to let breath once open (Tip: letting certain wines breathe is…

Green Wine!

As you probably know by now, I review all sorts of wine on my blog.  Whether it’s white or red, I love my wine.  Lately, the newest trend as we know is Organic wine.  Now some of you may cringe and some may jump up for joy, but my logic is “don’t knock it until you try it.”  I have…

Turdo Vineyards

My family and I were just down at the Cape May, New Jersey shore for a couple of days, and we got to stop at one of our FAVORITE wineries, Turdo Vineyards.  Let me explain to you why this is by far one of the best winerys.   The owners are hospitable and friendly.  They educate you on their wine and about the…

2010 Apothic Red Wine

This wine has been one of my favorites from the first time I tried it in 2011.  The combination of Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot make an amazing taste of fruits, mocha and vanilla.   This wine can pretty much be enjoyed with ANYTHING.  It hits your palette and you fall in LOVE with this red…

Skinnygirl Red Wine

The following review is for a brand I quite enjoy.  Alot of people turn their heads towards this because it’s made by a Reality Star (Bethenny Frankel).   I purchased this wine at the Philadelphia Flower Show.  As well as her signing my bottle, I had the pleasure of meeting Bethenny and have to say she is a…

Relax Riesling

The taste of this light-bodied Riesling has big notes of pears and apples.  It’s medium-sweet and has very smooth, low acidity.  Relax Riesling is also usually a pretty good value for the money.  This has to be by far one of my favorite Riesling, as I haven’t found anything that compares to it yet.  Relax was actually recommend by…

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Merlot

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Merlot has dark berries and spice.  Its flavor defines fruit and pepper as soon as it hits your mouth.  This is a dry wine.  Goes great with cheeses and fondue.  I give this wine a 7 out of 10.

Alamos Malbec

Alamos Argentine Malbec has rich fruit flavors with dark, earthy notes.  It’s silky and elegant, with impressive structure and balance.  The price is great at only 9.99 here in Pennsylvania.  Remember cheap wine doesn’t always mean its bad, you will be suprised at what you can buy and how great it may taste.  I’d say this is a 9…

Gallo Family Wine

Gallo Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of cherries, berries, vanilla, dried herbs and chocolate.  This is a cheap wine with great flavors.  It goes great with any pasta dish or steak.  I give this wine a 8 out of 10.
