Welcome to the weekly wrap-up, a look back at the previous week. Up first today I need your help for an upcoming post! To be more specific, a Reverse Wine Snob Readers Top 10. As you may have noticed, a couple months ago I inserted a 5 point rating scale at the end of each review where you, the lovely and/or handsome reader can leave your rating for each wine:
The plan is to use your ratings to produce the the first Reader Top 10 later this summer so please go through and enter your ratings for the wines you like or don't like!
This Week's Deals:
Be on the lookout for the Kirkland Signature Châteauneuf-du-Pape now in stock at some Costco locations. At $19.99 it's one of the few affordable and generally quite good CdP in our price range.
This Week's Discussions on The Reverse Wine Snob Facebook page:
How much do scores influence your purchase decision? This one was prompted by the excellent 90+ Cellars Malbec we reviewed last week. Add your opinion on the Facebook page.
We also discussed your favorite region for Cabernet Sauvignon, prompted by the review of theStonewalker Cabernet from South Africa. It looks like Napa Valley is the favorite despite the difficulty in staying under $20. Have a different favorite? Visit the Facebook page and leave your comment. (And don't forget to like the page while you're there!) Also, I'll have a Five Favorites post on California Cabernet coming up in a couple weeks.

Lastly, it seems my creativity failed me in trying to come up with a name for these weekly posts. The "Weekly Wrap-Up" just feels so generic. Got a better idea? Leave a comment!
That's a wrap, thanks for reading!
