Wines to Try

This is a list of wines that someone has suggested are worth a try. I'm not saying they actually are worth trying - but they might be. And trying new wines is half the fun. If you decide to experiment with any of these, let us know what you thought - anything from a single word, to a brief review. And more suggestions are always welcome (doesn't anyone drink Australian anymore?)

Mezzomondo Salento Negroamaro $9
Trapiche Pinot Noir $9.99
Canaletto Primitivo di Puglia $11.49
Palo Alto Reserva Red $13.49
Trapiche Broquel Cabernet Sauvignon $14.99
Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2004 $31
Donnafugata Tancredi $38
Clos de l'Oratoire Chateauneuf du Pape $45

d'Arenberg The Hermit Crab $20
Merryvale Carneros Reserve $36.99
Merryvale Hyde Valley $48.99
Pio Cesare Piodilei $45.99
Pierre Andre Ladoix 1er Cru $44.28


  1. If you want to try a couple of the whites on the list without having to buy a full bottle, the Hermit Crab and the Ladoix 1er Cru are in the wine sampling machine at the Prospect Street liquor store.

  2. Hey. Love the fact you are putting up "pictures". Its very helpful for the visual wine drinker.....I remember labels more often than spectific names. So if I know Oregon and I know what the label is....BINGO. Unless its a heavy tasting night...then I might remember...oh yes..Oregon...and ther was a horse on the label :)

  3. Fabulous Value even if your not the biggest Sauv Blanc fan....J&F Lurton Les Fumees Blanches @ $13.29
