Groth - Napa Valley - 2006 Savignon Blanc

About $15 from BevMo's wine club, 8 (1-10)

Badda bing!

Totally impressed with this, our second wine from the BevMo wine club - for real, they could have been sending us all the scuzz they couldn't sell at the store. That doesn't seem to be the case.

There's some sharp acidity that is well balanced with some earth tones of grass and... well, a prairie after a fresh rain? Maybe that's a stretch but it is crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking. Like a good Sav should be.

There I said it. Its good. I would buy this again if I was looking for a Sav Blanc. The reason it didn't score higher? I've found just as good for $10.

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.
