Wine Wednesday - Valreas Cotes du Rhone
{The last wine review for 2014}

We like a good Cotes du Rhone and this label proved to be a good one to add to our wine cooler.



Incredibly rich and deeply purple in color, a pleasant red berry aroma and taste of slight mineral and intense berry. This holds up to other Cotes du Rhone labels we have enjoyed in the past yet it costs far less than we have spent on other good Rhone wines.

Are you ready for the kicker with this one? It was a mere $5.99 at Trader Joe’s store in Tallahassee. I don’t know how they manage to acquire so many good wines for such low prices but hey….I am thankful.

This will be my last Wine Wednesday report for a few months. See you with more wine selections in February next year!

$5.99???? I relish the day when a Trader Joe's will come to us. (Of course we will have to change our antiquated liquor laws!)

Oh no, Oklahoma had laws as bad as Pennsylvania?! If you get a Trader Joes you will be amazed at some of the deals. Milk is cheaper at $3.59 a gallon and they have a wonderful cheese selection.

Birthday dinner - Crab cakes, cheese grits, champagne and a lovely evening!

Friday was Doug's birthday .  On birthdays we enjoy a good meal and plan a few fun activities.  The weather has improved (no storms !...
