Just got a big promotion. $150 budget for something special. Could use a recommendation. – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

Just got a big promotion. $150 budget for something special. Could use a recommendation.

I love Beaujolais, CDP, and pinot noirs (though know nearly nothing about the Burgundy region). Looking for recommendations for something special but a great value for its price point. Thinking maybe a Jean Foillard or maybe a Chateau Palmer Alter Ego?

Edit: I plan to go to my wine shop and ask but this sub always has great recs.

Bold wine suggestions under $25 – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

Bold wine suggestions under $25

Sorry if this isn't the right place for this question. My wife wants a really strong red wine, the bolder and more tannic the better as she has put it before. Petite Petit is one of her current favorites but I was hoping I could get her something new to try. I am located in the US.

It’s Friday, which means we are allowed to break the Sub rule on bottle porn, and Jesus does this qualify. These are the wines my collector friend drank in the last 2 weeks, and I didn’t get to try a single one. – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

UPDATE – IKEA Wine Racks: Any Good? – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

UPDATE – IKEA Wine Racks: Any Good?

(DISCLOSURE: I've had a bottle of chianti. Ruffino, but that's all the government store has. Please be forgiving on all counts.)

Hi folks,

I got the IKEA Hutten wine rack, as recommended, and put it together. Bloody hell is it heavy, did not expect this from flat pack stuff. And the sucker's already full – DAMMIT!

Those bottles become so much more sentimental and emotional when they're in a rack. Another rack is already on order. Good thing they build them to stack. Swear to god, I felt like Don Corleone lamenting about Fredo when I opened that bottle of chianti.

"They massacred my bottle…"
