Good Reads Wednesday

jeff-smEvery Wednesday I post my recommendations of the best of last week’s postings concerning wine, whether blogs or news. I list them in the order I read them, so you shouldn’t infer anything about the order in which I list these posts.

Round 2 of the taste-off, and we squeaked by again, to advance to the final 4. Alas, round 3 wasn’t a winner, as we fell to the eventual overall runner-up, the 2007 Stanton Vineyards. Got some good press, though: What’s with this upstart Seven Artisans? It plays so much bigger, bolder and complex than the $18 for which it asks from your bank account.”

A good reminder of how important branding is to a wine, the quality of the wine itself almost being an afterthought.

An interesting post about how certain luxury wines are all about conspicuous consumption, and very little about their innate quality.

    I’ve not tried this kind before, but do love red wine. I’m not a wine coussinoenr or anything, jut a fan in general. The other day we tried some Fetzer Cabernet (or something along those lines) from the grocery store. It was inexpensive and very, very good!! I love when things are reasonably priced. Amps up the enjoyment for sure!!xoxo,Carrie
