  • 07 Paul Jaboulet Aine "Parallele 45" (Cotes Du Rhone): Buoyantly fruity red. The light & playful (aka "food friendly") side of Grenache. #
  • 07 Trapiche Broquel Chardonnay (Mendoza): Reinvented producer goes all International style on us, & it works beautifully (& inexpensively). #
  • 06 Swanson "Alexis" Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville): Intense & blackcurrant-heavy flagship ($$$) that screams CA. Reticent about its future. #
  • 07 Smith-Madrone Chardonnay (Napa): At $30, a bargain of a broad tropical & stony fruit spectrum. Minerals are the real show-stealers here. #
  • 06 Mulderbosch Noble Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc (Stellenbosch): So sticky good, structured & focused, u won't mind a hint of burnt tire. #
  • 07 Stepping Stone Cabernet Franc (Carneros): For those that like their CF Californicated (luscious & dark), this is 1 of the best available. #
  • 07 Stepping Stone Grenache (Red HIlls-Lake County): Too much sweet plum on the nose for ya? Don't worry, it goes all pepper before it's done #
  • 07 Channing Daughters Vino Bianco (LI): Apparently N. Italy can be quite comfortably – and very, very tastily – at home in the Hamptons. #
  • 08 Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc (Casablanca Valley): One-dimensional, & that one dimension is lovely, lively lime & lemongrass. But that's it. #
  • 06 Smith & Hook Cabernet Sauvignon (Central Coast): Blackberries & currants have attacked under cover of smoke, & I surrender (for 1 glass)! #
