Chateau De Rochemorin 2005 Grand Vin De Bordeaux

I was "volunteered" to take care of a friend's cat for the weekend. I tried to explain to her that the cat would be asleep most of the time and probably wouldn't even know she was gone. That didn't work. So we went to her house, only to find the cat waiting by the door and a cat poo waiting in the shower. Lovely. After the gagging subsided we noticed that our friend left us a bottle of wine, and this gesture did not go unnoticed. I opened it only to find that it was really tasty! (see photo) Well, thank you Coco the Cat! You keep leaving the good stuff on the table and I'll rinse your shower out and chase you into your little tent anytime. You sly old cat, you.

Trentatre Rosso 2007

Great wine for the money! About $6 at Trader Joe's, I will be getting this again.

Gaetano D'Aquino, Orvieto Classico 2008

Supposedly Orvieto's are made from the Grechetto and Trebbiano grapes and come from Umbria (Italy). This one is about $7 from Trder Joes and is pretty tasty. This was the second bottle we've gone through in recent memory. Try it for something different.
