Etna Rosso at I Custodi from vineyards on the north slope of the volcano. Aetneus is a blend of Nerello Cappucio, Nerello Mascalese and Alicante. It's medium bodied, elegant with complex aromatics of red berries and dried herbs. Not tannic or sharp in any way but not slutty either. I love this wine for not sacrificing character for beauty.".
2008 Artadi Vi de Gain Rioja ($24.99): "This Tempranillo based red comes from higher altitude vineyards in Rioja. It's very dry, very elegant and beautifully balanced. Fantastic for people who really like Bordeaux or Giuseppe Zanotti High Heels
a restrained Cabernet style red. Delicious for barbecue."
2002 White Hawk Vineyard Syrah "White Hawk Vineyard" ($20): "A Syrah from one of the Central Coast's top vineyards, White Hawk. The vineyard owner's family made wine for only a few years, and these bottles evidently lay in the cellar for Jimmy Choo Silver Sandals 10 years. Here for a limited time. Fancy stuff at an incredible price."
2007 I Custodi Aetneus Etna Rosso $19.50: "Made by Salvo Foti, famous in Sicily for his wines made at IVigneri, some of them in the traditional palmero carved out of stone. But he also makes this Giuseppe Zanotti Sharon Peep Toe
Holly's Garden "Pagan" Pinot Noir ($23.75): "Biodynamically farmed, this Pinot Noir comes from Australia's alpine region (who knew?) and is grown at the towering altitude of 750 feet above sea level (which means it's about as high as our house on Mt. Washington). It's light, almost as pale as ros a complete flip flop of what you'd expect from an Australian Pinot Noir, with aromas and flavors of concentrated dried cherry, tobacco and what wine people call 'forest floor.'"
At Silverlake Wine, George Cossette likes:
wine from the village of Cheverny in the Loire Valley, where they blend a little Chardonnay in with the traditional Sauvignon Blanc. The Chardonnay really adds a nice element to the wine. It softens up the mid palate and rounds it out, yet you still get the great classic Loire Valley characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc."
2010 Famille Berchet Plateau des Ch Lirac ($20.99): "Lirac is a village adjacent to Ch that offers tremendous value. Here you have a a very rich, Grenache based red that drinks like Ch for half the price. Lots of dark fruit and spice and a fantastic texture. Really delicious to drink."
2011 Sz Pinot Gris M ($12.75): "To my taste, this Pinot Gris from a Hungarian producer reminds me of Alsatian Pinot Gris except it is totally dry. It even has a nice bit of texture. You can drink it by itself, but it's a wonderful food wine as well."
