  • 08 Pellegrino Passito di Pantelleria (Marsala): The orange rind & dried apricot are intense, but for this $, where's the acid? $27 B- #
  • 09 Dancing Coyote Gewurztraminer (Clarksburg): Light on the spice, but big on the tasty florals & citrus (& ultra-light on the wallet) $11 B #
  • 08 Dancing Coyote Petite Sirah (Clarksburg): Over-delivers on the nose (blackberry & smoke). But on palate… not so much, alas. $13 C+ #
  • NV Loose End Sparkling MSM (Barossa): An instant candied blue fruit mouth party, but w/ a steep cover charge & promise of a hangover $20 C+ #
  • 2005 Majella Sparkling Shiraz (Coonawarra): Peek under that American oak & you'll find some focused & tasty blueberry waiting for ya. $25 B+ #
  • 06 Deerfield Sangiovese (Sonoma County): Bright cherry & spice that might as well be fugitives, since they're running from the 'heat.' $30 C #
  • 06 Deerfield Buchignani-Garcia Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel (Dry Creek Valley): A finish hot enough it could be used by fire-eaters. $60 C #
  • 05 Deerfield Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma County): Currants, raisins & spice. Not just for breakfast anymore (thanks to the good acids) $30 B- #
  • 05 Deerfield Shiraz Cuvee (Sonoma County): Everything is amped up in this blend, from the tannin & booze to the blue fruits & pepper. B- $24 #
  • 06 Roanoke Vineyards Cabernet Franc (North Fork, LI): Very impressive & almost lush CF, with just enough green action to beguile. $32 B+ #
  • 07 Winter's Hill Pinot Blanc (Dundee Hills): As Alsatian as you'll get in OR. For the $, it's a citrus-laden triumph (& a bargain) $18 A- #
  • 06 Winter's Hill Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills): Clearly well-made but a touch too heavy on the oak on all of that gorgeous berry fruit. $29 B- #
  • 06 Winter's Hill Pinot Noir Cuvee du Vigneron (Dundee Hills): Delicate & balanced for all of its richness, spice & pure cherry fruit. $39 B+ #
  • 08 Billsboro Winery Riesling (Finger Lakes): All peaches & limes. Tastey and without pretense (but also without any real drama). $16 B- #
  • 06 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (Alexander Valley): Dark Cherry rode into town, guns blazin' & wearin a lot o' leather $35 B+ #
