Atacama

Today's wine deal

Bonny Doon Chenin Blanc at $80 a case (the Web site says $100, but when I add 12 bottles to my cart, it says $80, go figure).

This is a fantastic value. If I didn't have too much wine already (and I don't want to move even more of it down to San Diego), I'd definitely be buying some more of this wine. It's a Chenin Blanc done in a Burgundian style: it's way less fruity and far more subtle than you'd expect.

On the other hand, skip the Nebbiolo. Bleah. We opened our bottle of that last month, and oh my stars, was that disgusting. Old, tired, and played out. Avoid.
