It's got really nice nuances of 100% Piedmont Neb grape character yet more accessible for short-term drinking and at half the price of Baralo and Barbaresco.

Looking to pick up around 8 bottles in the $70-100 price range (although it would be fine to have an outlier or two of more expensive and/or some cheaper value options to keep things interesting). It will be a blind tasting, which should be fun. I think it would be best to try and get most of the different regions covered to help compare/contrast styles. I would welcome suggestions of good example bottles in that price range from those who are more experienced than me when it comes to scotch. Thanks!

Has only gone up a buck or so after 6 years, still a nice sipper well under 20 bucks, properly put together Bordeaux with dryness structure and nuanced flavors.
I recommend this for its simplicity and versatility, rather than knocking you over it is pleasant.
Thais fortified wine which I think is a good value came out today and may be selling fast. Be prepared - as a classic Port it is fairly sweet and dark-fruity (prune fig raisin) - plus some spicy & woody, a bit of beautiful savory-umami and nutty notes, butterscotch biscuit, subtle acid profile hints at tart tropical fruit. Despite the big sweet palate it's very 'moreish' & demands attention to explore its subtle layers as the finish builds over a few sips; this reveals a long and sonorous red grape note...
