brief look back at wine

Happy New Year!

A brief look back at wine in 2009.

Cheers to all and Happy New Year! This year, if anything was for sure, was that time went by with the blink of an eye and the dawn of 2010 is upon us. 2009 was, well, an interesting year to say the least. In many ways it was not interesting, C’est la vie!

One facet that was interesting was of course the wine drinking and tasting. We also had some very memorable meals and will highlight 5 of those meals, as well as two top 10 lists of the wines from this year. One list bearing no price that includes some legendary names and some legends in the making. The other list is a value list of those wines I found delivered the best value for under $20. Together we made 2009 more wine savvy! Let’s make 2010 even better!
