Lasseter 2006 Sonoma County

This is a Bordeaux style blend from Sonoma County that is 40 percent Merlot,  30 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 26 percent Malbec, and 4 percent Cabernet Franc.

This has a deep basement of flavor. It is a great example of why the French have blended these varietals together for so long. It is only too bad that these are not done as often in California.

This is a tasty wine. It was brought over to our house to pair with some Chicken Parmesan, unfortunately I don't know where to go get some more.

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.
