Hey, wine aficionados, help me out

    I've never spent a lot of time wine tasting, although it intrigues me. But here's the thing.

    My wife brought home six bottles today from a liquidated restaurant that her employer owns. I want to know if you recognize any and can recommend them.

    • 2003 Amelia Chardonnay
    • LoDuca Reggiano Lambrusco
    • 2001 Fontana Di Vino
    • 2005 Pillar Box Red
    • 2006 Pillar Box White
    • 2005 Covey Run Chardonnay

    If I'm missing information on any of them, let me know and I'll check the label closer.

    Sorry, none of those sound familiar. But you'll have a good time seeing if you like 'em.

    not rot gut but nothing spectacular. mostly about $10 a bottle except for the amelia chardonnay, which would run you about $30.

    I've had both of the Chardonnays. From the Webster wine notes:

    The Amelia was a little expensive for what it was (I paid $26.99) but a nice white. A little more complex and lighter than your typical Chardonnay.

    The Covey Run was a decent value at $5.99. Very drinkable. Not much to remember other than price.

    I'll drink the Pillar Box Red. Good value, big taste. High alcohol content. Decent Aussie Red.

    Six bottles? Six nights. Then use Sunday to dry out.

    The price was right.
