Beaujolais Nouveau 2005 est arrive!

Don't forget Thursday, Nov. 17 is Beaujolais Nouveau Day! Kahn's will have this short-term wine for tasting and purchase, but not before Nov. 17! Looks like they'll carry at least two -- the Joseph Drouhin and the Georges Duboeuf. Both make fine holiday party wines especially at just over $100 a case. (Certainly better than the scary quantities of the three-dollar Charles Shaw I see wheeled out of Trader Joe's on any given Saturday.) If you're looking for an inexpensive but really festive and drinkable wine, try one of these little favorites -- branch out a little bit! And if you love wine, then you already appreciate the joy this first wine of the fall season brings with it. (Remember, the Nouveau doesn't keep so buy it now and drink it through Easter or so next year.)
