I almost bumped myself.

Just got a great Cote du Rhone. Good acidity, super try. Dark fruit and spice flavors. 13.99 at Total wine. Brotte 2016 Creation Crossett Cairanne.

I have a Beaujolais for tomorrow.

I went into the wine shop planning on grabbing one.

Grabbed 4 cabernets. What can I say, I like what I like.

Always like a good Zin for Thanksgiving. Also have an Amarone, a white Burgundy and a white Rhone.

I'll be opening up some Whole Cluster Pinot for the meal. Nothing too crazy. Tonight I'll be going to a friend's house and the dad has a wine cellar in the basement filled with Italian reds

Montepulciano from Abruzzo. Never knew it was a grape
I didn't know that either. I started to correct you to tell you that Montepulciano is a picturesque hill town in Tuscany where they make delicious wines with the Sangiovesse grape. I know it is because I was there two years ago. But I looked it up and saw that it is also the name of a grape grown further south in Italy. I have had that wine before but always thought it was a Tuscan wine that couldn't make the cut to be called Vino Nobile de Montepulciano. Now I know. I will have to try another bottle.

I'm opening one of these up as I type this. It's Sangiovese

The grape is a really good house wine to have around

I know this wine is wildly popular, but I’ve never had it, so starting here tonight.

After that.. Man, I stood at the Italian wine shelf for a solid 15 minutes with no idea what to get. So I grabbed the label I liked

Edit - Holy shite this is pretty good for $25. Small production (3600 cases) think it’s 60/40 cab/merlot from oakville region.

This is becoming one of my house wines. Approx $17 a bottle. Wonderful wine perfect for some of the Louisiana heartier braises, stews and gumbos. Domaine de la Janasse Reserve
