Westerly Vineyards 2008 Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Ynez

Yet another from the Grocery Outlet in Oceanside. This was $6 and has a real distinct vegetal note, green bell peppers, that I like in a Sav Blanc. The label says it comes from "ancient soils," I wonder, aren't all soils ancient? I'm tempted to call them (805-686-9558) to ask what they mean by that. Izz good though and I'd buy more, maybe two next time.

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.
