Spruce Goose 2009 Oregon Pinot Noir

This was my "splurge" at the Grocery Outlet at $10. Being from Long Beach, I grew up with the Spruce Goose under the huge white dome near the port but it has since moved to Oregon. I had to buy this.

Evergreen Vineyards makes this Pinot and they chose the Spruce Goose because their tasting room is underneath the wing of the historic airplane.

This isn't jammy and overbearing at all and has subtle hints of cedar and clove. It would play nice with a wide variety of foods.  This is another schwing grab for only $10, I'd do it all over again with pasta Marinara like we did tonight. 


  1. nice @ 55 degrees. Drink well my friend!

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.
