It's a Chardonnay, Ma!

Yes, Last week on Wednesday evening, My sister-in-law Michelle and I shared a Chardonnay made by Domenico Winery of California.The name of the wine: "A Wine You Will Always Remember." I arrived at my Michelle's and my brothers home around 6:00 PM, Robert was at work.

We popped the cork and started tasting the wine.I hadn't eaten dinner yet,so there were no strange foods to effect my taste buds. "A Wine You Will Always Remember" sells for under $10.00 at Roger Wilco in Deptford,NJ and now it has appeared at Freddy's Liquor store in 57- W. Cuthbert Blvd in Haddon Heights,NJ.

No swirling here, I simply took a sip and allowed the wine to slowly reach the back of my mouth, the taste was smooth in the mouth, I tasted Pineapple and even a taste of "honey" as the wine concentrated down into my taste-buds. As I swallowed it was mellow,no harsh tastes or any burning. The Chardonnay was chilled for a day before it was uncorked, and the ride to my brothers home was only 10-minutes.

The Color is similar to a green grape, it has a small tangy taste intially as it enters your mouth, then soothing as you swallow it, with an inviting alert to the brain for more, more, more,! And you will like it.

Now it's Michele's turn: "Smoooooth, tasty, not overwhelming, not your ordinary Chardonnay, better tasting than a Pinot Grigio, and I like Pinot Grigio's, The wine has a nice feel in the mouth, its not dry and its not sweet,to me its a little intense as it enter the mouth and then its smooth with a slight warmth as it travels down my throat, when it hits my chest, its warm. I would drink this wine in the fall and through the winter. I love white wines, I am adding "A Wine You Will Always Remember" to my list of favorites. I do taste a little pear, peach and other fruits in the wine as I swish and play wine expert for a minute, I really like it, I recommend it be labeled an MLW for Major League Wine.

Well there you have it, Michelle has rated "A Wine You will Always Remember" an MLW.

I rate the wine as a AAA- Very Good, I am not a White Wine drinker, I prefer Reds, but being objective about the wine, I would agree with Michele and purchase this Chardonnay over a Pinot Grigio when it comes down to making a White Wine decision.

Over the next few weeks we will be trying Pinot Grigio's and other white and red wines, we will try semi-sweet table wines from around the world and from Eastern Europe.

From time to time, We will try Vodkas, Rums, Cognacs, Beers, and much more.

So Stay with us, contribute to our blog and if you are a winery, send me your wines for a Regular guy, and regular people tasting. We are not experts, we are having fun and being objective.

Even though I may sell these wines, everyone's personal taste to the tongue is different. I request that you try the wines each week and visit the liquor stores and eventually the Restaurants,night clubs and bars who will be selling our products, and let me know and all the readers know what you think of the wines presented.

FIrst Wine Tasting & Stuffed Shells Too!

Good Morning to everyone. Today is September 21,2010

On Thursday evening September 16th, I invited my Brother Robert, his wife Michelle to dinner. I served my famous homemade Pepperoni Gravy,along with Suffed Shells from
P & S ravioli Company, Meatballs, and the pepperoni (Margarita) used in the cooking of my gravy for the shells.

Our Wine: A Wine You Will Never Forget, A 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, California produced by Domenico Wines ( My rating system is not numbered, we use letters.
Here are the rules: We Don't swirl and stick our noses in the glasses, We move the glass across our nose gently, then take a sip, swallow it all the way down and take another hardy taste moments later. (No Spitting allowed) their is food on the table and my almost 1-year-old nephew sitting with us, eating and tossing his food on the floor having fun and laughing while we eat and drink.

The Rating System:
MLW= Major League Wine: Defined as WOW! this stuff is excellent
AAA= Good, equals a wine over $10.00
AA=Average,about what is expected of an under $10.00 wine
A=Poor,My god, Pour the stuff down the sink

Michelle isn't a Red Wine drinker, she prefers White Wines, but she gave it a taste and consumed an entire glass (good sport that she is).
Michelle's Reaction: "I like it, I don't drink Red Wine, I would buy the wine for a party and family event, its good, I would rate it a "AA" since I don't drink Red Wines too often."

Robert: It's real good, has a nice feel and taste to it, not to dry, not sweet, perfect with pasta, I really like the wine and would buy it and mention it to friends. It's not heavy and in my opinion has a taste more like a table Chianti or Dago Red. I rate the wine at "AAA"

So far we have been eating our shells, getting to the meat balls and pepperoni, and the baby has decorated the floor with bread crumbs and bits of meatballs, and laughing all the way.

OK, Here it is this my opinion, I agree with my brother, the wine is very tasty, not dry, not sweet, the aroma is similar to a table Chianti, the flavors on my "tongue" are a light coffee, a tannin, with a nice feel (smooth) as the wine hits the back of the mouth and tongue. The Wine is easy to drink and very easy to open a second bottle. The Wine is smooth, nothing harsh, and a great value under $10.00 for anyone on and not on a budget. "MY RATING IS "AAA" I like red wines, my favorite wines are Chianti's, the Sangiovese grape. I like a hearty table wine.
"A WINE YOU WILL NEVER FORGET is perfect with a chunk of provolone cheese and cut fresh pepperoni and an Italian loaf of bread, I sat down on Sunday evening and had the wine accompany my small feast and later fell asleep on my couch. I recommend that you travel over to Roger Wilco in Deptford and try a bottle or two, then email me: or write your own opinion to my blog, I would really appreciate your input and become a part of my tasting crowd.

Now: the question is Where can you find "A Wine You Will Never Forget" The first Liquor Store to carry the wine is Roger Wilco in Deptford at 1343 Hurfville Rd and Rte 41, the store is near Home Depot, and next too Arby's on Rte 41, in Deptford.

Roger Wilco opens at 9:30 AM.

The New Buy-Rite Store will be having a wine tasting of "A Wine You Will Never Forget" I will post the date on my blog. Included in the tasting will be a new vodka you can sample called "NUDE VODKA" Both products will be available for immediate purchase. I will be there and look forward to meeting all of you. So Stay tuned for more Wine Tasting and events.

This Thursday I will Review a White Chardonnay by Domenico Wines, also being sold and is available at: Roger Wilco in Deptford called "A Wine You Will Always Remember."

Any questions please email me at:

Do you know anyone who owns a liquor store, restraunt, bar, night club, catering hall, etc in New Jersey, I am available to meet with them and discuss all three importers that I represent.

Getting Closer to Wines under $10.00

Today is September 2,2010. In the days following Labor Day, I will begin to you my opinions of wines under $10.00 and where to find these wonderful wines in New Jersey.

I am going to seek out online wine sellers and discuss with them the potential of stocking the wines that I write about and hopefully if you live outside of New Jersey you will have the availability of purchasing and tasting the wines in my articles each week.

I will make a available a list of New Jersey Liquor stores stocking the wines weekly.

So I am almost ready to launch Wines under $10.00 Reviews. I look forward to your opinions. Many of these wines will not have any wine magazine or Parker rating, instead they will have Joe Rating, which I will discuss in my next blog.
