Bridlewood Syrah 2005

This is Bridlewood's Santa Ynez bottle (their cheap stuff) and it is awesome! They make a small handfull of botique ones but this is the bottle you can find at wine stores, grocery stores, etc. Killer Syrah, pick one up if you see it.

Ridge Syrah/Grenache 2005

Ahhh, the Ridge Syrah/Grenache.  This was one of the best wines I've had in months! Since Christmas at least. I was not expecting something so rich and chocolatey and this blew me away. I'm going to have to get more of this, much more.

il Gufo Barbera 2003

From Lodi CA, this Barbera was produced and bottled by L'Uvaggio Di Giacomo. I thought it was quite good but my wife totally adored it. We picked it up at The Wine Garage in Calistoga CA. She's been looking for it closer to home to no avail. We may have to either drive back up, or have them send us some more.

Le Boris Jacou, Gamay 2007

From Jean-Francios Merieau in the Loire Valley in France this Gamay was bigger and fuller than many I've had before that I've liked. It was brought over to our apartment, thanks Michaw!

Vinho Verde, Espiral

Crips and effervescent white wine from Portugal. Was not expecting the amount of fizz and was pleasantly surprised! We picked up this Vinho Verde from Trader Joes for less than $10. I will get another one next time I'm there, or two!
