retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Greetings from the frozen tundra of Connecticut, where a nice glass of red wine is a great way to stave off the cold.

Two that we've enjoyed over the last week…

  • A 2001 Mark West Sonoma County Pinot Noir, a light, inexpensive wine that went great with a pasta-and-tomato sauce dish.
  • A 2001 ADW Shiraz called ‘Nova’, from the Barossa region of Australia. We have to admit, though, that we didn’t have this one while suffering through the cold. We drank it while in Scottsdale, Arizona, at the estimable "Cowboy Ciao!" restaurant, which continues to serve, the best chopped salad we've ever had.

    But it would be great in cold weather, too.


Have a great weekend!
