Our kitchen was wall-to-wall bottles, glasses, and legal pads last week when three local wine experts joined me to taste and evaluate the 50 $12-and-under retailer-nominated wines that comprise this year's Plonkapalooza entries. Labels are hidden under paper sacks, so no one knows until we're finished what wines we loved or trashed. The full story including each taster's top picks will appear in Wednesday's food section.
Winning plonk wines tend to sell out quickly each year, so you might want to make sure you've got your favorite wine shop on speed dial.
