Martin’s for Rhône’s, Bordeauxs and other old worlds.

Whole Foods has a bunch of overpriced meh.

I opened a Montepulciano from Abruzzo. Never knew it was a grape and just thought it was a region
Oddly enough, my introduction to Montepulciano was at a vineyard outside of Austin. Flat Creek. It’s a decent Italian wine, and my favorite grape to order. It’s the best name out there...

Where is that from? I know garnachas are big here, but many regions produce garnacha for export.

For sure. Very earthy and peppery. Almost drinks like a cab franc

I'm envious. Cab Franc is a misordinately disdained grape by the previous generation. Properly treated, smooth and silky (although a hair vapid, which is what I love, as I'm not a lover of heavy handed wines, in spite of the shite I'm lately drinking).

Spot on with cab franc. It’s a great wine.

Cool, I'll look out for it in the Texas sections. Texas has better wine game than I initially thought.

I opened up a Barolo from Azienda Agricola Icollirossi. I got it for $29.99 and the Vivino average price is $70. Pretty good for the price. I also had another Nebiolo that was cheap. The guy at the store said it's the same grape and made the same as Barolo but they have strict licensing laws in Italy so it's not technically a Barolo.
