Scharfenberger Brut NV not sure how many times I have tried this in the past 12 months but its a pleasant american sparkling wine.. bright granny smith apple on the palate.. light mousse
Roederer Brut Premier NV with a new package.. looks a little more refined. pretty yeasty nose, lots of sparkle and fruit... acidity on the finish.
Pio Cesare Cortese di Gavi. 2009 what I think most drinkers of insipid pinot grigio would really like. clean and citrus.. a touch sweet a touch mineral.. reallly a nice white wine
Domaine Schlumberger Riesling 2006 Les Princes Abbes ... hate this type of wine personally... lots of diesel and petrol.. great viscosity and flavors ... if you like these flavors... surprised to be tasting this since I have the 2008 on my shelf..
Pio Cesare Barbera D Alba 2008... the smell and taste of dried salami and coldcuts.. a very Masculine wine... from start to finish.
Marques de Murrietta Rioja Reserva 2005 ,,playing off the meatiness of the Barbera this had a soft Iodine nose.. earthy and floral.. medium bodied... good juice also...never been a huge fan of this producer but this was a good valiant effort
