  • 07 Olsen Ogden Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast): Go big or go home. In this case, VERY big. And smoky. And vanilla-y. U get the idea. $32 B #
  • 07 Sean Minor Four Bears Pinot Noir (Napa Valley / Carneros): A lot of cherry & spice, but it's hidden behind the smoke screen. $17 C+ #
  • 07 Jaboulet Muscat de Beaumes de Venise "Le Chant des Griolles" (Rhone): 1 of THE best Muscats I've EVER had. Asian pear fans rejoice. $25 A #
  • 07 Leitz "Eins Zwei Dry" Riesling (Rheingau): Superior to the `08 – steely, crisp with *commanding* acidity. An awesome bargain for $18 B+ #
  • 08 Stellar Organics No Added Sulfites Merlot (S. Africa): Makes a very strong argument for the addition of at least *some* sulfites. $12 C- #
  • 07 Heron Hill Old Vines Riesling Reserve (Finger Lakes): For those who like their citrus with pith intact & rinsed in mineral water. $25 B- #
  • 07 Bargetto Old Vine Zinfandel (Lodi): So much sweet incense spiciness, it's like being at the spa, but soaking in blackberry booze. $18 B+ #
  • 08 Stellar Organics No Added Sulfites Chenin Blanc / Sauvignon Blanc (S. Africa): Environment-friendly, but not taste-friendly. $12 C- #
  • 09 Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough): A concentrated shot of passion- & pink grapefruit-juice. Maybe *too* concentrated. $15 B- #
  • 08 Jules Taylor Pinot Noir (Marlborough): Slightly awkward but promising juggling act of bright cherry, sweet oak & lively acidity. $22 B- #
  • 06 Ch. Tanunda Noble Baron Shiraz (Barossa): She's too smooth & sultry. You'll go to bed w/ her but probably won't call her tomorrow. $50 B+ #
  • 08 Fred Loimer "Lois" Gruner Veltliner (Kamptal): GruVe it is, but with that light body, simple aroma & short finish, groovy it isn't. $15 C #
  • 08 Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner (Kremstal): All sultana & citrus, & almost all very good. Pass the Asian salad with nuts & mandarins! $14 B- #
  • 06 Revolver Wine Co. 'The Fury' Cabernet Franc (Napa Valley): A fist full o' flowers. And jammy blue & black fruits. And some booze. $45 B #
