Sunday, November 19th, 2006

Richmond Grove – Shiraz (2002)

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

This is definitely past its best, but it was never very good to begin with. Decanted and opened up its drinkable with a meal, but not something that you would want to take to a dinner party.

Grandin – Brut (Methode Traditionnelle) – NV

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

Grandin – Methode Traditionnelle – Brut Rose (NV) – Sparkling Rose

Monday, November 13th, 2006

This is pleasant enough, but not really good enough to rate it as highly recommended, although it is definatly worth its price as compared to the stuff below this affordable bracket.
