  • 07 Huber Alte Reben Spatburgunder (Baden): I am totally sure this is delicious Pinot, just as sure as I am that it's overpriced Pinot $80 B+ #
  • 09 Kesselstatt Josephshofer Riesling Kabinett (Mosel): Racy & Spicy German beauty seeks caring cellar for 4 years of rest & repose. $30 B+ #
  • 09 Rheingraf Riesling Trocken (Rheinhessen): Feminine but forward. Also packs a bit of a punch, so watch what you say around her, ok? $21 B #
  • 08 Three Rivers Winery Insania Red (Columbia Valley): A bit hot but pleasingly complex (hello Olives & cedar!) Bord'x-style blend. $35 B+ #
  • 09 Three Rivers Winery Insania White (Columbia Valley): Match thisBord blend w/ grilled scallops & your mouth will thank U later $25 B #
  • 06 Hugel & Fils Pinot Gris Classic "HUGEL" (Alsace): I consider it very awesome that someone is making a lively & very non-flabby PG. $15 B #
  • 07 Spring Valley Vineyard Frederick (Walla Walla): A little too big, a little too boozy, but the spice is juuuuust right, Goldilocks. $50 B+ #
  • 09 Shinn Estate Vineyards "First Fruit" Sauvignon Blanc (Long Island): So much lemongrass you'll think you're in a Thai restaurant. $22 B #
  • NV Shinn Estate Vineyards Red (Long Island): The pepper & herbs are nice, but while I don't mind 'em thin, I do mind 'em gaunt. $14 C+ #
  • 07 Shinn Estate Vineyards Nine Barrels Reserve Merlot (Long Island): Walk-on part by dried fig steals the show in off-Broadway hit. $42 B+ #
  • 08 Petroni Vineyards Chardonnay (Napa Valley): A bit too big, a bit too buttery, a bit too vanilla-y, but tropically tasty. $30 B- #
  • 04 Petroni Vineyards Poggio Alla Pietra (Sonoma Valley): Tastes like Sangiovese, not easy in CA. But the heat & the price don't help. $60 B- #
  • 07 Tenuta Rapitala Nuar (Sicily): Sicilians love to argue, but it's tough to fault a Nero D'avola blend this solid, nuanced & tasty. $15 B #
  • 06 Petroni Vineyards Syrah (Sonoma Valley): At turns, like taking alternate sips of dark red berry juice & concentrated jet fuel. $40 C+ #
