Croad 2008 Paso Robles Grenache

Thisvis a great example of Grenache, good acidity,  good spice, a wonderful drinking wine. We paired this with some strawberry shortcake and although it wasn't the best pairing, it dis well.

Tablas Creek Vineyard 2010 Vermentino

From the vineyard in Paso Robles that some friends picked up. This has some great fruit because they don't use any oak to dumb it down. In Rhone they call Vermentino Rolle, although I've never seen Rolle on a label before.  I dig this.

The White Viognier 2010

I didn't know that Viognier could be anything but white. This hails from South Australia via the Grocery Outlet and was a steal at $4. There were nice stone fruit notes and it was perfect for the long hot weekend.
