Shoofly 2004 Shiraz

$15 from BevMo, 10 (1-10)

From the footsteps of mighty Odin this was a surprise ringer!

We joined BevMo's wine club and this was in the first shipment...thank you BevMo, I think I have a crush on them. No pun intended.

This is a big shiraz, really big for a $15 bottle - and with a screw cap to boot!!! I like them even more because of that. I'm fully impressed; there are notes of chocolate, licorice, raspberry and plum.

Next time I pop into a BevMo, I'm fully going to pick up a few more.

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.
