Time again for the weekly wrap-up where we look back at all of the activity from the previous week. This week we featured lots of reviews from some very popular brands like Ecco Domani, McManis Family Vineyards, and flipflop Wines. We also unveiled a new Five Favorites post on California Cabernet featuring five widely available Cabernets at a variety of prices under $20.
This Week’s Deals:
Lot18 featured the 2008 Quattro Leoni Vino Rosso Barbera D’Asti for a couple days earlier this week. I gave this wine a 9/10 on my taste rating scale when I reviewed it.

This Week’s Discussions on The Reverse Wine Snob Facebook page:
Do you care if your wine is just a label, with no vineyard to speak of? I was expecting to have a bit more push-back on this one, but most Reverse Wine Snob readers have little issue with a winery that buys all their grapes on the bulk market and has no vineyard of its own. In fact, based on the comments I’d say some of you even prefer this situation as it can help to keep the prices low (as long as the wine is still good!) Have a different opinion? Leave your feedback on The Reverse Wine Snob Facebook page.
The review of the Rubrato Aglianico Dei Feudi Di San Gregorio also inspired a discussion of your favorite Italian varietals. The responses were pretty varied after we excluded everyone’s favorite, Nebbiolo. (Proof that we may be cheap but we still have expensive taste!)
