About Contributors

noakley – Editor and Red Wine Contributor

I am a fortyish father of two raising a family in the midwest.

I enjoy wine with my dinner whether at home or in a restaurant.

I deceive my physician every physical when asked about alcohol intake.  I look him straight in the eye and assure him my intake is limited to a glass a night, or less.  Reality is closer to two and a half glasses a night.  It must be a coincidence a 750ml bottle holds roughly five glasses of wine.

I believe there is good, complex, drinkable wine at all price points and the fun is finding value.  The only challenge with finding a good wine for $100 a bottle is cost.  For most of us, cost is always of concern and as Benjamin Franklin said “A penny saved is a penny earned.”  Contradicting that sentiment is my agreement with the anonymous quote proclaiming “life is too short to drink bad wine.”  Here we are.
