Dear Natalie, February 24, 2012

Have you chosen your wine for Oscar night? If not, there's still time ...

My top nominees include a Best Supporting Chardonnay in a chicken dish role, along with a heart-breaking Pinot Noir that's a diva in the glass and satin on the tongue. 

I've also given the nod to a number of undiscovered indie bottles in my latest wine picks that out-perform their price point. Snap them up now before they become famous.
