Pieroth Icecristel, Cabernet Sauvignon
Pieroth Hajos-Baja, Hungary 2006 Icecristel Cabernet Sauvignon $50.00 PRP 10 This is by far the best wine I have ever had. It rolls off the tongue like silk.
Bohotin Pieroth Romania 2006 Edelbeerenlese, D.O.C-C.I.B $25.00 PRP 9 This is an excelent wine. It is a bit on the sweet side but everyone I know who has tried it loves it.
Graf Zoltan Pieroth Germany 2006 Qualitatswein - Rheinhessen $23.00 PRP 9 This is a bit less sweet than the Bohotin but just as good.
Danzante Merlot Danzante Italy 2006 Merlot $4.00 World Market 6-Like it. Ill definatly keep it on hand. I brought this to a party along with a couple of other wines at 7 and 10 dollars with the disclamer that this one might such because it was 3 bucks. Let me tell you Everyone liked it. Even people who dont realy like wine. Great value.
  Red Cat Hazlitt New York 2006 Red Catawba, Baco Noir $7.49 Hazlitt 8 - Love it This was the first wine for regular daily drinking I fell in love with. I found it at my first wine tasting at the Botanical Gardins in Chicago in 2007

Rip Sorter Yarraman Austrailia 2004 Shiraz Cabernet mix $8.00 Whole Foods 4 A friend picked this up for us. it was decent. There are better wines for me to pick up on a regular basis.
Big House Red Big House California 2006 Mix $9.00 World Market 1 The funny thing about this wine is that when i was looking at it in the store I knew i heard of it before. Unfortunatly i thought someone told me it was good. Well I was wrong. I had tried it at a Binnys wine tasting. I wrot down on the sheet "So bad never buy"
This wine is very dry, has a bad after taste, and is rough to swollow. I brought it to a party with Danzante and everyone agreed that the Danzante by far better.
