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.

This note will be short, as it is 11:30PM on a work night... but. I had to mention this great buy at Trader Joe's. Domaine Saint George, 2003 Sonoma county Cabernet Sauvignon, barrel reserve. This is one of those great table wines that go about unnoticed because it's not a well known winery, it's got a kinda funky label, and The Trader's got it at an astoundingly low price, $5.99. $5.99! Full of flavor, almost too much oak, firm tannins and a nice round mouth feel. Ok, not a lot of finesse, but $5.99! Put some in the kitchen!

3 Stars out of 5.
