Better information about wine, please

Note to Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman (Northwest Wines, Kitsap Week):

I don’t know who you guys think you’re writing to or for.

In your latest column, you recommend 10 wines “for everyday enjoyment.” The average price was $16 a bottle, or $480 a month, if one enjoyed wine everyday. I would guess the average reader of the North Kitsap Herald would not spend half that on wine every month. And what do we get for our “education” about wine (assuming this is one of your goals)? This wine “opens with aromas of plum, bacon, blackberry and blueberry ... and gives way to ripe flavors of boysenberry, plum, raspberry and dark cherry.”

That’s just what I’m looking for in my wine — something that tastes like seven fruits and bacon. Come on, guys, give me information I can use at a price I can afford.
