  • 07 Saunter Petite Sirah (Napa Valley): Very big, very dark, & very good. Feed this beast some grilled bison steak & roasted potatoes. #
  • 07 Verge Syrah (Dry Creek Valley): Excellent vintage & it shows. These luscious blackberries have some funky dirt on 'em – lucky for us. #
  • 07 Olsen Ogden Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley): The booze may be big, but so is the strawberry action, and that fruit is puuuuuuure, baby. #
  • 07 Napa Cellars Mount Vedeer Chardonnay (Napa): A buttery fruit bomb. But for what it's worth, a fruit bomb with serious mineral action. #
  • 08 Twomey Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley): Bad vintage, but really good wine. A cunning balancing act of tropical fruit, veggies & minerals. #
  • 05 Twomey Merlot (Napa Valley): Here's something A. Dias Blue & I can finally agree on. Dark, dense, powerful, spicy, excellent & expensive. #
  • 07 Rancho Zabaco Reserve Zinfandel (Dry Creek): Brings great spicy black fruit to the party. Also brings obnoxious drunk friend Petite Sirah #
  • 07 Carmen Chardonnay (Central Valley): A ride through the tropical fruit garden. The wheels aren't all balanced, but the ride's a bargain. #
  • Black Box Wines Cabernet Sauvignon (CA): A decent buy but not nearly as strong as their other releases. Stick to their value Syrah or Chard. #
  • 07 Polka dot Medium Dry Riesling (Pfalz): Green is the packaging. And the fruit (green apple,lime). And the (under) ripeness of that fruit. #
  • 08 Prime Cellars District 4 Chardonnay (Napa Valley): Big, but damn good & food-friendly thnx to balanced oak + stainless treatment. Bravo! #
  • 06 Black Cloud Pinot Noir (Okanagan Falls): Promising 1st effort, balancing elegance & brambly fruit, kind of like Brer Rabbit in a tuxedo. #
