CLEB 2007 Syrah

CLEB Wines
Santa Barbara County
Colson Canyon Vineyard
Cost: $15

Bought a case at the recommendation of The Wine House. Stoked I did! This is a big, fruity, crowd pleaser. Just as good a day after opening. Even though it comes from the same vineyard as Tensley's flagship, this wine, made by the protégé of Joey Tensley, is more drinkable now than the Tensley from the same vintage. I bet it will get better with age but I can't stop drinking it.

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.
