Curtis 2006 Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

Wha wha wee wah! We've been sitting on this for a while now and we're sure glad we waited. This has all the small berry fruit of a cab and all the peppery spice from a well thought out syrah.

Although this blend of Rhone and Bordeaux is rarely found outside of Australia, it is a wonderful expression of what these two can form. Like Voltron, they can be much more powerful than the sum of their individual parts. 

Lindeman's be damned.

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.
