Wines at home (again)


I just got back from another trip to the wine country (I’ll blog about it later), where I bought only a couple of bottles of wine. This reminds me that it’s time to figure out what wines I do have at home – so that at least it might encourage me to drink them. Indeed, Mike and I have promised that from now on we’ll drink a bottle of “nice” (by which we mean wine over $15) wine at least once every two weeks. I mean, we buy these things, we should at least drink them!.
Anyway, this is what I have.
