Domaine de la Voute des Crozes 2009 Cote de Brouilly

Bought at on a recommendation from the Wine House in Costa Mesa. Cost $10-$15. Gobs of fruit, like blackberry and cherry, and earth, lots of dusty earth, and more fruit. I wasn't a fan at first I actually dumped out my glass and opened another bottle. But I came back to it on day two and liked it. Appreciate it for what it is: a very fruity, earthy French red.

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.
