2012 La Bastide - Syrah Vin de Pays d'Hauterive Vieilles Vignes Les Genets
This is a very simple Syrah, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of the most delicious. Not much else to say, it just tasted good. A terrific value!

2014 La Playa - Sauvignon Blanc Estate
This is lean, mealy and unripe, and I doubt more bottle age will correct that.

NV 1917 Il Conte D'Alba - Moscato D'Asti
In remarkably good shape considering it's been sitting in our kitchen, NOT in our cellar, for more than three years. Served cold and it's still refreshing and holding together well. Slightly spritzy but not off-putting. Demi-sec (semi-dry). Everything in balance. A very pleasant starter wine.

2011 Ventisquero - Carmenere Grey [Glacier] Trinidad Vineyard
Quite balanced, harmonious and substantial. Old World and New World at the same time; blends elements of each into a harmonious package. This is a well made, substantial wine with substance and stature. If you have this in your cellar, don't drink it casually. It's definitely a "special occasion" wine. An incredible value for the price.

2006 Tobin James - Zinfandel Late Harvest Liquid Love
If you're expecting this to drink like Port - even a non-vintage one - you'll be disappointed. This is outrageously sweet without much depth or balance. A sugary treat in a glass, if that's what you're looking for. Not for me.
