More Great Cheap Wine…

Katharines Grapes 2 06

Katharine's Summer Grapes

Quickly now, two great, cheap wines…

1.  5Mile Bridge Serpent’s Path, Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, available at Whole Foods.  $11.  Wow. Beautiful, medium body, warm climate Pinot.  Black cherry, hint of cedar, tiny bitta mushroomy, long finish.  We went on about the other 5Mile Bridge wines, this one’s maybe the best. 2006.

2.  Guenoc, Victorian Claret, North Coast, 2006.  Can’t, can’t, can’t go wrong with these little Guenoc wines.  This is slightly dramatic, dry, not over-fruited blend.  It doesn’t say, but I’d bet Cab, Cabernet Franc, petite verdot… guessing!!! This is a loss leader at BevMo.   $7 (yah, $7)
