Wine

“If anybody orders Merlot, I am leaving.”

 

It’s not that complicated… Drink what you like.

That being said here are some of the wines I like and the reasons why… If you have suggestions, email me at thor@eakescpas.com

 

2011 and 2012 were great years for Napa Chardonnays. But who has time to research which Chardonnay and what vineyard? Just give me the names!

OK…

Bread and Butter Chardonnay is the very best, at about $18/bottle it won’t break the bank. Oakey and full bodied, it’s got real depth and character, Like me!

La Crèma Chardonnay is the old stand by - like Pixar movies, it never disappoints.

Let’s go dark for a moment:

Giant Steps Pinot Noir Yarra Valley, Australia is a great Pinot…

But it’s not at Vons, so if you’re grabbing a 6 pack of wine at the market, look for…

La Créma (again) Pinot Noir

19 Crimes Red Blend
