Baptist Wine Club Year in Review 2010

Most Popular Reviews:

These two reviews elicited, by far, the most comments from you nice folks. I’m guessing it’s because no one can find information about Low Hanging Fruit Merlot (California) anywhere else, but the reason escapes me why Procrastinate Take 5 (California 2009) had so much interest.

Top Search Phrases:

I really wish these were naughtier. Ah well, there’s always 2011.

Personal Favorites for 2010:

My three favorites for the entire year, which kept finding their way into my kitchen. I just keep going back for more!

Ironstone Obsession Symphony (California 2009) was an absolute revelation for me. I buy a bottle whenever I find it on sale; I share it with family; I give it as gifts. Love this wine!

In boxed wine, Silver Birch Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand 2009) restored my confidence in non-traditional packaging. So much so, that I’m planning a Boxed Wine Smackdown for this summer. Just you wait!

And Ménage à Trois Red (California 2008) never failed to please and was a consistent and reliable go-to favorite, even when dining out.

I also enjoyed more than my fair share of Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, though no review was ever posted. Shame on me, and I’ll get right on it.

The Worst of 2010:

That would have to be the Reboot Brut. It was so awful, we didn’t even open the second bottle we purchased in 2009 until this New Year’s Eve. It was still bad. So bad, in fact, that four people gagged on it. We mixed it with red grapefruit juice and created an almost palatable cocktail. Shudder.
