We want to be the place you go for wine information, kinds of wine information. We have reviewed and will continue to review lots of cheap wines and moderate priced wines. The time has come to start reviewing expensive wines. The wine experience includes those special moments when you want to experience an upscale wine. Maybe it's a birthday, maybe it's an anniversary. Maybe it's a job promotion or maybe it's just getting together with special people to enjoy the finer things of life.
Once in a while we will review a bottle of expensive wine, a fine, upscale wine running in the $60 to $100 range. This may sound like a lot of money but remember: $15-$25 a person gets you movie tickets and popcorn, or pizza and beer, and not always a memorable version. For that price you may get a very, very memorable wine. Life comes with no guarantee and upscale wine is no exception. We and sometimes a panel of invited guests give our unbiased opinon on our expensive wine to help you select that special wine for that special occasion.
You have read some of my other wine reviews. Here the ground rules are a bit different:
Sometimes I will review the wine myself. Sometimes I will invite others to help me taste and
review the wine. In this case I ask each guest to describe herself or himself when it comes to wine. Some will be
wine lovers, others can take or leave wine but are willing to participate in this experience.
You will definitely find people whose wine outlook is similar to yours. Unlike I do for my other wine
reviews, I may consult other wine reviewers before selecting a wine. If so-and-so
says that such-and-such is a disappointing wine I don't care to spend $50-75 or more to see
if I agree or not.
One final point: We would love to hear and publish your opinion on these reviewed wines.
