Woodland Wine Merchant's 6 for 60.

Woodland Wine Merchant's 6 for 60 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Cheers to Woodland Wine Merchant's 6 for 60 promotion. This idea hits a remarkable price point and delivers a global wine experience curated by Nashville's favorite wine merchant. Will Motley's modest sized store covers a impressive collection of wines, spirits and beers that you probably won’t find elsewhere, right in the center of East Nashville. The 6 for 60 promotion is a perfect occasion for using my Clos Denim tote, and it has East Nashville style. Wine reviews to follow.

Steak and a Show.

The Show Mendoza Malbec 2014 and California Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Any of the red grapes of Bordeaux can play the lead in a one-man show depending on where and how they are grown. Here Charles Bieler, Joel Gott and Roger Scommenga (aka the Three Thieves) present two similar and recommended steak wines from the same vintage, different grapes and hemispheres. The labels are a collaboration with Hatch Show Print begun in 2005.

Hopping the suburbs.

Founders ReDANKulous, Bell's Two Hearted and Blackstone Adam Bomb photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Here is a sensational flight of three high gravity IPAs that come with high ratings and plenty of fans. Surprisingly all three were found in the cooler priced as singles at nearby suburban Donelson Wine and Liquors. These IPAs each have big personalities, all have very hoppy architecture.

Nashville IPAs.

Nashville IPAs - Black Abbey Five Points, Tennessee Brew Works Cutaway Rye, Yazoo Hop Perfect, and Fat Bottom Knock Out, photo by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • It sort of has a ring to it. The IPAs could be the next team in Nashville and now there are plenty of locally brewed players. I recently poured four readily available local IPAs to take a close-up look and taste side-by-side.

Jerry Hall, Editor
Three strikes, you're in.

Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • After 17 years in various roles with Frugal MacDoogal's, they dropped me. I started as a night cashier, working my way to the role of contract web guy, until being sacked. So Winewaves & More is started. Or better yet, restarted. The "& More" refers to the addition of spirits, beer and literally more to be determined. It's always five o'clock somewhere. Grab a glass. Cheers!
