  • 04 Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Blanc de Blancs (Champagne): A baby w/ a ton of tart green apple. Could use more bread but still a bargain $46 B+ #
  • NV Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut (Champagne): Sour cherry comes on all elegant & sexy; this will NOT last very long once opened. $70 B+ #
  • 08 7 Deadly Zins (Lodi): A good one for the bargain-hunters. Smoky, meaty, & not much else-y; but certainly decent for the price-y. $15 C+ #
  • 01 Chateau Doisy-Védrines (Sauternes): Lays on lemon custard thick as molasses. Will go for several more yrs w/out breakin' a sweat. $55 A- #
  • 08 Cru ‘Appellation Series’ Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands): Tasty but things get a lil' dark (cherry fruited) early in these parts $29 B #
  • 07 Montecillo Crianza (Rioja): A bit too much vanilla oak, a bit too much funk, but just tart cherry action amount is *just right*. $12 B- #
  • 01 Montecillo Gran Reserva (Rioja): Black cherry, black licorice, but not to be blacklisted because this is a downright tasty bargain $25 B+ #
  • NV J Cuvee 20 Brut (Russian River Valley): A little aggressive, but a LOT going on (fuji apple, lemon biscuit, honeysuckle) for the $. $20 B #
