Um, this post was an April Food's joke and nearly all fabricated. Some others didn't get the joke so I don't do these anymore. If you want to critique something serious on the subject, please review my more recent post here:

I have no idea who Tim Elliott is, but have just read his 2007 post on Charles F. Shaw. Where he get his misinformation is beyond me but after reading this I would never put an iota of credibility in any of his writings. Just to start, my former husband was not from Chicago, was never a dentist nor any kind of doctor.  We did not sell the winery property to Charles Krug and I could go on and on with the absurd fabrications this Tim Elliott has dreamed up.  What a nutcase.  Lucy Clark Shaw  (former wife of Charles F. Shaw)

Charles Shaw wine has become an institution in Arizona and California. Not just because of the low price, but because of the pleasing taste and aroma of pepper and berries. It has become very popular with the older adults who like to have parties. No one seems to turn down a glass of Charles Shaw. Some don't even know what the label is and they always ask for more!

Tim, You might actually try the 2006 Two-Buck-Chuck Chard and see how close to the 92-94 point score you come.

Not to worry, nearly everyone else thought this was legit, as well. In retrospect, I could have just written a straight post about Alder joining the Wine Spectator but he posted while I was in the middle of cooking up my false tasting note... I'll try harder next year ;-)

Ah, missed the joke. A little slow on the uptake first thing in the morning!

Sonadora, Happy April ;-) I took the seeds of truth and took it into absurd but still somewhat believable territory for my April Fools joke. Not too many people got it, however. Oh well, there's always next year. The best wine blogger April Fools post was from Alder, as usual...

Interesting. I must admit when I first saw your title I thought you were going to review a bottle of $2 Chuck. Though I doubt any of the consumers of the new Charles Shaw wines will confuse it with a bottle of the $2 kind....the price alone should be enough!
