Jean Luc Colombo, Cote Bleue 2006 Rose

I liked this but the misses didn't at all, she made me drink her glass as a matter of fact. I wonder if it being a 5 year old rose had anything to do with it.

There is a little mustiness, fact, but that may be due to it being French and not so much its age. They don't put deorderant on their rose over there.

I don't mind it at all. I kind of like the mushroom nuance to it, it makes it seem more like an adult beverage.

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.
