Better with wine

 

Joe's Wine of the Month, May 2016

This is a wine list (started in summer 2016) to help me remember what I liked; if I didn’t like it, then it’s not on the list. Maybe you’ll see something new to try; maybe you’ll suggest something new; that is how this whole thing is supposed to work, really; I think.

We drink mainly in the $12-25/bottle category, so if you’re looking for super-fancy wine recommendations, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

And yes, I would have a “Better with Chocolate” page, too; but I haven’t ever met dark chocolate that I didn’t like, so there’s no point keeping a list.
