Curtis Heritage Blanc 2006

About $12 from Curtis' wine club, 10 (1-10)

Beam me back down into another bottle of this Scotty!

Superb balance of floral and fruit, there was this burst of honey with my first sip that dwindled after several more - but other nuances then took it from there.

I have never had such a honey nose on a Viognier/Roussanne blend before and I liked it. I really liked it. We've been drinking this blend for a while now (aren't we special) and if my memory serves correct, this is the finest vintage yet.

Contemplating buying a case. Contemplate it yourself, why don'cha.

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.
