  • 06 Hall Merlot (Napa Valley): The dark fruits & cocoa are an attraction, but the extraction action might prove to be a distraction. $28 B #
  • 08 Polka Dot Riesling (Pfalz): Refreshing & a touch sweet, limes & lemons abound. Certainly the most fun PD offering I've had. $10 B- #
  • 06 Gaja Ca Marcanda 'Promis' (Bolgheri): DAAARK black cherry and enticing acidity add up to pretty much deliver on the promise. $40 A- #
  • 07 Wild Rock "Elevation" Sauvignon Blanc, (Marlborough): There's a game afoot here, & the name of that game is "super-ripe fruit." $17 B – #
  • 07 Domaine Bernard Baudry Chinon: With that much brett masking the red fruit, a more suitable name might be "Domaine Barnyard Baudry" $18 C- #
  • Jean-Paul Brun Rose d'folie (Beaujolais Rose): Welcome to the strawberry patch, where you will enjoy your sunny summer respite. $15 B #
  • 07 William Hill Chardonnay (Napa Valley): Thoroughly CA style (butterscotch) but w/ a nice shot of minerality to keep things in check. $22 B #
  • 06 William Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Like a Moscow apartment building, technically brilliant but not terribly soulful. $23 B+ #
  • 05 DaVinci Chianti Riserva: Balanced, spicy, chewy & very "modern-style." Your mileage may vary depending on how much you dig prune. $30 A- #
  • 06 Palmaz Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Juicy, amped up, & sporting a ton of structure. Don't buy the negative hype on the oak. $100 A- #
