BV 2007 Coastal Estates, Pinot Noir

This is one of our go-to $10 Pinots and at Thanksgiving with a bunch of, no offense, "token wine drinkers"; what, are we going to break out the 2000 Foxen Bien Nacido? I don't think so.

This has a strong fruit nose with heaps of cherry, blueberry, and blackberry. It isn't too big, hot, not acidic so it pairs well with everything.

Tonight, we wanted it to par well with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, candied yams, cranberry relish, rolls, and gravy. It played its part masterfully.

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.
