Foley 2004 Santa Rita Hills Syrah

After a day of wine tasting in Santa Barbara there isn't not much that
can pizazz since everyone has purple tongues and palate fatigue. This
Foley Syrah; however, out shines.

Although a few in our group weren't big fans, I enjoyed it
tremendously. There were big bright dried cherries and a tart
funkiness like goji. It was bold and like one added, thick, and felt
good like a Syrah should.

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.
