Bethel Heights Pinot Noir 2007 
Characteristics: Really spicy, bright and pleasingly herbal with cola and black cherry notes filling out the nose. The mouth is fresh and light bodied. Spice and black raspberry lead the mouth which is crisp and smooth at the same time. This is a very "pretty" Pinot Noir. Yea! -WB, April 2009

Cassan Côtes de Ventoux Rouge 2007 
Characteristics: Sweet, bright, lively red fruit in the nose. Strawberries, red raspberry, cherries and plenty ripe. A very pure expression of these candied fruits without the encumberment of oak. The mouth shows a little more cola berry with a surprisingly vibrant acidity. This is a zesty, fresh and appealingly honest look at Rhone Valley red wine. -WB, April 2009

Gaillard St.Joseph Blanc 2007 
Characteristics: This is an appellation which should enjoy more following. This wine is very expressive in all facets. The fragrances are not pretty white wine aromas but instead compelling; wet stone, herbed focaccia, overly browned roux. Tremendous savor in the mouth. Almost a shimmer of flavours dancing on your tongue. Nuances of mango, lemon grass and pork loin drizzled with lemon oil. Incredibly fun wine to pair with food.
