Bridlewood - Central Coast - 2006 Viognier Reserve

$15 bought from their wine club, 8 (1-10)

Superman's cape!

This is one of my favorite Viogniers there is. It has perfectly balanced the acids and that perfumey/floral nuance that I seek in a Viognier.

Mmmm Viognier, my lovely and still unpopular stepchild of the Rhone. Thank Zeus that they didn't mention her by name in 'Sideways' or we would be paying twice as much for these too.

There is nothing uncanny or unusual about this, its just plain delicious. Unfortunately, I may be losing the novelty of the Bridlewood Viognier because I've had it so many times. I'm starting to think all good whites should taste like this...

Who's the big winner with a bottle of this? I am.

Dynamic 2010 Red Table Wine

From Trader Joe's, this was in their red blends section for about $6. I'm satisfied. 34% Syrah, but whats the rest? Bordeaux varietals? Zin? Gamay? Concord? Who knows? Who cares? For $6, this could be my house red if it plays it's cards right. It is light and fun and has a good balance of fruit and spice. Throw your expectations in the gutter and be pleasantly surprised.

J 2001 Russian River Valley Brut Magnum

Can you say magnum baby? We finally cracked this for the two year old's birthday party. It was crisp and bubbly and balanced and complex all at the same time. J makes a fine sparkler.

Trinity Hill 2008 Chardonnay Gimblett Gravels

Beautiful straw color. Apple, vanilla, peach, full bodied, new world (N Zed), buttery with a nice acidic zing that brings it all in balance. Should go well with our fish pie.
