"The support provided by the Starboard and Bethany Blues is immeasurable. They have stepped up to the plate to support the American Cancer Society and the Relay For Life," Fritzler said. "Their cooperation and generosity have enabled us to hold this first- ever charitable event." Besides the opportunity to taste great chili, there will be continuous entertainment by local and region- al musical talent.

I was surprised at how the tan- nins were masked but they shone through at the finish. Here is a boutique domestic Syrah I just saw on sale for $50, down from $73. When Arnot- Roberts Syrah Hudson Vineyards Carneros 2005 first came on the scene it was priced at $73, and Robert Parker and Jon Visser loved it. They went on and on about the label being painted by Margaret Biever-Mondavi, Mr. Robert's granny. The wine was sort of an afterthought. This is a 93-point beauty with a dense, dark, opulent great fruit nose and aromas of tar, white pepper and blackberry. The fruit follows through the mid-palate and into a long, well-balanced finish. It should cellar seven or eight years. Very little produced. Good resale in 2012 if cellared properly. The 2004 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is on sale for $87/bottle. If you buy a six-pack you can get it for $78/bottle. Recently it was being sold for SI10/bottle. I realize that is big bucks but the wine came in very strong, rated by Parker at 95 points, and it has a shelf life until 2029. This is a very underrated wine and I think it will Sell for hundreds of dollars 12-15 years out. A comparable is the 1996, rated 95. It was originally priced $28 and is now on resale at $160. Choose any of my favorable red wine adjectives and plug them in. Wine Spectator only rated it 93 and predicted 20 years but it is no secret that its panel doesn't care for winemaker Sbragia's efforts. This wine is stunning! My old pal AI called me to ask why I hadn't written up Chateau de Lugagnac Bordeaux Superior 2005, priced $13. A1, you almost stumped me on that. I am not a regular subscriber to the Wall Street Journal so I missed the arti- cle on "a blind tasting of 2005 vin- tage Bordeaux under $20." Even after finding the article, then read- ing that the wine went well with pizza or meatloaf, I went looking for a bottle of this very recent release. AI, it is a nice little wine but not worth $13. The name is pronounced Lu ghan yok by the way; Lagoonak really threw me off. I was spelling it La Gounac. Even Google was confused on that one. Last winter I recommended Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red Columbia Valley 2005 at $20. Sorry to say it has fallen off to $180 per case or $16/bottle. The good news is this beautiful blend of Cab, Syrah, Merlot, Cab Franc and a smidge of Sangiovese, Carmenere and Malbec is a year older and drinking better. It will cellar at least eight more years and is drinking well now. It goes great with pizza and meatloaf. Rate it 90. Keep in mind that 2005 is con- sidered to be the best vintage in Washington history. Of course fre- quent readers will know that most Washington State wineries are less than 10 years old. Tammarack was founded in 1998. If you like to think of yourself as a big boy and you trust Delmarva Power to keep your cel- lar humming, buy a couple of bot- tles of 2004 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon, rated 96 points. It can be found for $1,500/bottle. A three-pack of 2003 rated 96 points is going for $5,400, but "it's packed in its original wood." That certainly got my attention. If you are a buyer Of this type of wine, better you look for Araujo Cabernet Eisele 1995, Parker 98, Wine Spectator 95. I just Saw a 1,500 ml (that's double bottles for new readers or folks like me who are metrically chal- lenged) for $650, down from $1,000. Big bottles tend to age a bit faster but these still have years left on the shelf and will sell for a big premium in a few years. Wine Spectator says good through 2010. Parker says 2030. Just tasted it and it has miles to go before it sleeps. This price is right for peo- ple who collect premium wine for resale or drinking. Hot money from overseas should step intothe California Cab market as the dol- lar devalues. Happy hunting!
