  • 07 Twisted Oak "The Spaniard" (Calaveras County): Savory, inspired red blend that is most certainly not "unemployed in Greenland." $49 A- #
  • 08 Bonny Doon "Le Cigare Blanc" (Arroyo Seco): The lady’s a little bit fat, but she’s singing of quince – & boy, can she ever sing. $19 B #
  • 10 Bogatell Garnacha Blanca (Terra Alta): Like Dr. Who’s TARDIS, packs way more melon than should realistically fit inside of 750ml. $12 B- #
  • 06 St Francis Merlot (Sonoma County): Lots of red fruits & confidence (and it ought to be confident, because it’s pretty damn solid!). $17 B #
  • NV Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé Cuvee de la Pompadour (Carneros): Almost as light as the elegant rose petals of which it will remind you $35 B #
  • 05 Cornerstone Cellars Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Young, promising but livin in the shadow of its 04 older bro $75 B+ #
  • 08 D’Alessandro Nero d’Avola (Sicilia): Enough black plum for a grocery store Produce department, enough grit for a Spaghetti Western $15 B- #
  • 09 VIVI Primitivo (Puglia): Mr. Spicy Red Berry is nice, but has a lingering odor that’s a little too Primitivo if you catch my drift. $10 C #
  • 09 VIVI Falanghina (Campania): Lime, flowers & apples with a bite strong enough that it needs Chicken Alfredo to be fully tamed. $10 C+ #
  • 09 Sacha Lichine "Vins Sans Frontiers" Sauvignon Blanc (Vin de Pays d’Oc): Refreshing, like water, which it more-or-less tastes like. $10 C #
  • 08 Sacha Lichine "Vins Sans Frontiers" Cabernet/Merlot (Vin de Pays d’Oc): Hi! I’m fruiy! Really fruity! Did I mention I was fruity? $10 C+ #
  • 10 Santa Carolina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc (Leyda Valley): The forecast calls for vibrant, tropical weather. Vino-wise, that is. $10 B- #
  • NV Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Rosé (Champagne): I’ll take my earthy red berries on 7-grain bread with a side of rose petals, please. $47 B+ #
  • NV Graham Beck Brut Rose (Western Cape): Lavenders & red berries in a simple presentation, but sometimes simple is *just* right. $15 B- #
  • NV Graham Beck Brut (Western Cape): Under-ripe pear is about all that’s there. But the rich mouthfeel just might keep you sippin’. $16 B- #
  • 09 Valckenberg Dornfelder (Rheinhessen): Here we go ’round the blackberry bush, the blackberry bush, the blackberry bush… $12 B- #
