Salcheto 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano

Holy macaroni Batman, this was one of our loot from our 2004 trip to Tuscany.

This DOCG has all the components of a great Italian wine: fruit, dirt, sun, leather, and Vespas.

We paired this with an amazing ragu that had the depth and body to hold its own.

There was heaps of Bacon and parsley, n dill in the salad to balance the fruit and earth of the wine.

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.
