Wine Reviews & Ratings


My wine reviews and ratings will help make buying wine in the Twin Cities less of a guessing game and more rewarding to you the consumer.  My rating system uses a concrete system to determine the quality of a wine.  Since I don't represent a wine shop, winery, or distributor I give you an independent, unbiased perspective on wines in the Twin Cities.  


The most update wine reviews are on my

Cellar Tracker Account:

I review over 1,000 wines a year and this will list the wines by time, region, etc.

WINEGLAS is converting all old notes into Cellar Tracker notes.  Also the Wine Searcher featurer helps you find the wines at the best prices around the country.

NV Roederer Estate Brut Anderson Valley- USA, California, North Coast, Anderson Valley (12/9/2012)
Wonderful Sparkling wine. Crisp and vibrant with apple, chalk, pear and citrus. Our house Cali Sparkler. (91 pts.)

Price does not determine quality.  I get a lot of people rave about Silver Oak but I have wines that are better at a fourth of the price.
