Wolf Mountain Vineyards 2008 Chanteloup

This Chardonnay/Viognier blend from Georgia (the state, not the country) was a gift from some old family friends. Chanteloup is French for "Song of the Wolf," and I was pleasantly surprised having never tried wines from Georgia before (the state, not the country).

There is a good amount of oak on it and if I didn't know it was 13.2% alcohol, I would have guessed it to be much lighter because it is crisp and refreshing, like a Sauvignon Blanc.

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.
