It's a blog for winelovers. It's a blog for slackers. It's the lazy drinker's reference for cheap, high value wines. You know, the bargain wines you just don't know if you should take a chance on; maybe in the supermarket or drug store. If you want advice on grand cru, well, everyone knows where to get that: get yourself one of those slick, expensive mags. This is a blog, man; prices and spellings are the best we can do, but, don't hold us to 'em. Photos are under copyright.

Like all winelovers, we're always looking for a new wine. As a slacker, I'm looking for the best wine at the cheapest price. Winelovers want to share their discoveries with others, who frequently don't give a damn. Well, here's a place to post your newest discovery - or an old favorite. It doesn't matter where you are, your post may be of interest to a neighbor or someone coming to your neighborhood soon. Post a review and a source. Soon you'll be seeing posts with new sources and new temptations that you can use on your next wine expedition.

Here's a start:
Rosemont GSM
A red blend from McLaren Vale, Rosemont Estate, Australia
the same three grapes are used as in the famous Chateauneuf du Pape; Granache, Syrah and Mourvedre. Aged in American Oak for 18 months
Delicious, hearty, with deep red fruit flavors and a long finish. Great with beef, hearty red pasta sauces, cheeses, or just by itself.
Has been available at Trader Joes for $9.99. An incredible bargain for a wine that made the Winespectator best 100 list last year. 2002 vintage. The Wineslacker gives it 3 and a half stars out of 5 stars for value and quality.
