Listen up winos. Tonight’s tasting was the holy trinity. Good, cheap and in-stock. Bottles flew out the door with happy members grinning like they stole it. Hell, they kinda did. Here are the highlights.

2005 Domain l’Idylle Roussette de Savoie
This honey colored French white brought all kinds of goodness to the table. At way under 10 bucks this is the kind of cheap date you fall hard for. Two weeks later you’re left with little more than a hickey and a headache, but the memories were worth it. There are only 7 bottles left at the Guild. That’s it. No more can be had. Act fast….really…don’t read any further. Buy it now!

2007 Chateau de la Chaize Brouilly
I’m a midnight snack guy. Usually a sandwich and a glass of wine. Since it’s late I never want to pop anything too grand so I look for a good value gulper. This is that wine. It’s cheap, lip-smackingly tasty and clears my palate between bites of my beloved roast beef sandwich. I’m a simple man…sue me.

2007 Chateau Haut-Monplaisir Cahors
If you grill steaks, buy this wine. The combination will make your tongue love you. Seriously, it hasn’t been happy with those silly Tofu dogs you’ve been feeding it. Really, you should apologize…those things are evil.
