2007 Chapoutier - Cotes du Rhone Belleruche Rouge
First Rhone experience: Deep, dried red berries mingled with musty, earthy tones. A solid, acidic backbone combine with a deceivingly smooth tannic structure to yield an intensely, interesting wine.

2006 Joseph Drouhin - Bourgogne Laforet
This being my first Burgundy, I'll describe it virtually subjectively: Earthy, faint red berry aromas, with a slightly smoky, cherry flavor on the palate. A light bodied pinot with a light tannic structure. Not exactly my cup of tea but I'm curious to learn more upon tasting more from this region!

2007 Cave de Lugny - Macon-Lugny Les Charmes
A medium-bodied chard with sour apple and light citrus notes. Solid acidic character with little to zero oak here, which helps drive its pleasant crispness. Overall - quite nice, especially for 12.99!

2006 Greenwood Ridge - Sauvignon Blanc
Sour apple and pronounced minerality are found on the nose as well as an almost vegetative quality. Mild tropical fruit in the mouth in a crisp, med body with a quick finish. Nice amount of oak but nothing truly exciting here, albeit decent for the price.

2007 Chateau Ste Michelle - Dry Riesling
Spicy butterscotch and a good dose of honey dominate the nose, while tangy, bright citrus and subdued peaches mingle in the mouth. Despite the lower than preferred acidity, it managed to maintain a decent balance in a light but adequate body of goodness.
