No, not another tasting note (I just did one on December 31) but a heads up. I was in Harding's Market on Crosstown Parkway in Kalamazoo this afternoon and saw a new case of this wine being lifted onto the closeout shelf for $13.39. I've already bought as much as I can afford, but the wine is undoubtedly still there waiting to be snapped up. It's a wine that ordinarily sells for $30 bottle and, in my opinion, worth every penny. At $13.39...wow!
Also available in huge quantities is the 2004 Fazi Battaglia Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico (see my note on December 7, 2008). It's the wine in a funny vase-shaped bottle for $3.39, and even though it's a 2004, it's still fresh and lively--a good fish wine. Try it first if you're not familiar with Verdicchio, but I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Nearly all of the closeout wines have some age on them; that's why they are being moved. But both of the above wines are all the better for their time in the bottle.
