The Lucky CountryImage by DavidRphoto via FlickrLucky Country Chardonnay Barossa 2010  unoaked, soft finish.. and not in a traditional chard bottle.. Lucky Country is another nickname for Australia from a 1967 novel.

Lucky Country Shiraz McLaren Vale 2009  light bodied.. somewhat finessed shiraz not the in your face style. a touch of mint on the finish..

Torresella Pinot Noir Sicily 2007 soft nose and body.. touch rustic finish but then Sicily isnt known for Pinot Noir.

Torresella Nero d"Avola Sicily 2007  a touch earthy, leather and roses, what a traditional Italian will be like. soft red fruit... good food wine.

Tamari Malbec 2009  an elegant style of malbec.. not overly fruity.. nice finesse a little tinny on the finish from younger vine flavors but overall a nice wine and great value.

Federalist Zinfandel Dry Creek 2007  light and briary.. a touch old I think.. relatively uneventful. some tannin on the finish but not enough to really care..
