South Sound 2008 Marlborough Pinot Noir

Holy cherry bomb, I like. There is touch of oak to balance out the stone fruit but this is what I expected.

This was another grab from the Grocery Outlet for about $6.

We paired it with spaghetti and meatballs and it might have been a little too jammy, it might have gone better with something spicy or something with a fruit sauce.

I would buy this again.


  1. The 2009 is at Grocery Outlet for $4.99 (lissts at $24.99);

  2. Only $5 eh?, well even better!

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.
