    What was the name of the Shiraz that everyone liked, and where can I find it.

  • John Jurgensen

    Guests – Langmeil Winery $20
    Audience – Barossa Valley Estates $13

    I’d check Total Wine, Wegman’s, then your local liquor store. For Barossa, also check the wine section of your supermarket. They are widely available. FWIW, I also like the Yalumba which didn’t get picked.

    I enjoy your program, though sometimes it gets too “funny”, and sometimes too “tedious”. And, the prices of your wines are frequently out of my reach. More than $35.00 may be out of my reach. So I am not looking for 2 buck Chuck. But, really. For a domestic wine….really, more than $90.00? That is out of my reach. I think the most expensive wine in my cellar is $75.00. And that was purchased more than 15 years ago (But it is fantastic now.)
