2010 Ranchero Cellars "Chrome", a Grenache Blanc-Viognier blend. Delicious. Notes of lemons, tropical fruit. Very clean in the mouth, with good acidity.
2009 Ayres Vineyard Pinot Noir "Lewis Rogers Lane Ribbon Ridge". We found this Mom and Pop winery in Oregon four years ago and have visited twice. Great folks. Strawberry notes with maybe a touch of cinnamon. Smooth finish. Paired well with the pork roast I grilled.
2006 Cabot Vineyards Syrah "Aria's". Always enjoy the noses on Cabot wines. This one gave off roasted meat and smoke. Nice red fruit on the palate combined with that meaty character. Very nice.
2011 Bedrock Heritage Wine Evangelho Vineyard. This is a Zinfandel blend. Gorgeous nose with blackberry fruit predominant. Lush mouthfeel and plenty of spice on the palate. Loved it.
