Oh man, I 'd have to work hard to get that here. But you are off the A-B InBev train now! Yay!!! A relatively new brew, started in 1975 when the company was formed. What the snobs say...

We are in Fronsac and it is 2016 here with this meh wine. I rate it about an 87 or 88, or as some wag wine critic might put it while trying to pump it, "it is flawlessly featureless." Weak nose, bland on the tongue, slight lingering pepper finish, it imparts nothing, as though to do so may be too challenging. Not even any legs to speak of. Ah well, we have to clear room on the cellar shelves somehow, so I accept this challenge. :D It is indeed a dirty job but someone has to do it!

We had family visit over the weekend, serving ham. Pinot Noir goes great with ham!

This was a late Christmas for us, as illness and weather scotched our original plans. My b-in-l gave me a wine chiller for Christmas, and it works well to keep a chilled wine chilled.

During the weekend we tried a few wines I purchased at Costco. The Barolo and red blend were very nice.

The tawny port was just "ok". I will finish the bottle, but won't buy it again.

Ooooh, McGregor from Finger Lakes, NY! 👍 That is some relatively high-buck wine from out that way. Nice.

I've been in their Clan Club since 1990, and get at least 25% off purchases. I spring for a bottle or Rob Roy or Black Russian Red on occasion, as (especially with BRR), there's nothing on the market like it.
