I last visited the store as part of my unencumbered Father's Day wine jaunt. While at Bin Ends, I enjoyed talking with Dan Kline and taking his recommendations on wines they had in stock. Here are a few selections that stood out:
- 2007 Villa San-Juliette Petite Sirah
As soon as I opened this one I knew I was getting into something serious. The wine is so intensely dark you could use the cork to write your name on a piece of paper and have color left over. "Blueberry motor oil" the producers call it (who themselves are the producers of American Idol). Definitely check out this Paso Robles wine at just over $10 after discount if you're into into big California reds.
- 2006 Lachini "S" Pinot Noir
Solid Oregon Pinot Noir from a voluptuous vintage. I don't think they have much of this one left but it was a really nice wine at $30. Even nicer 15% off.
- 2009 Red Newt Circle Riesling
Click here for a review I wrote of this wine previously. This is a fantastic warm-weather, food-friend Finger Lakes Riesling for just over $10 after discount.
