It takes a village...

Beaujolais-Villages, Manoir du Carra, France 2011 was a perfect match for this sunny weekend. It even tasted light-hearted. "Spicy, red cherry fruit has a satisfying depth," according to Wine Decanter who gave this a score of 90.


The following reds were part of a wine-tasting at BPYC. Wine drinkers have been protesting for quite awhile about the quality of the vintages behind the bar, which has typically been selected by the beer drinkers at the club.

The votes are in on the shortlist, with the Santa Rita Cab Sav tying with the Wyndham Estate Shiraz.  As with any house wine, the price is right.

Las Rocas Garnacha Spain $14.65
Wyndham Estate Shiraz Australia $14.45 (sale price)
Rocca delle Marcie Chianti Venaiolo DOCG $13.95
Santa Rita Reserva Cab Sauv Chile $13.95
