Alma Andina 2008 Reserve Malbec

This Argentinian Malbec came as a gift from my mom who, I suspect,
procured it from that mail order Zagat wine club thing. Well? I'm glad
she did.

Some of my favorite types of Malbecs are free Malbecs. This one hails
from the Uco Valley (never heard of it, didn't google it) and hides
14% alcohol pretty well.

I enjoyed this thoroughly and if the rest of the shipment is as tasty,
I may try and convince the wife we should sign up.

What's more fun than getting wine in the mail? Drinking said wine!

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.
