    1. 2008 Giocato Pinot Grigio - Primorska Region, Slovenia – Color: extremely pale, Nose: pear, a little sugarcane, very reserved nose, Taste: nothing very dominant, drier than most Pinot Grigios, starfruit (tart, not terribly sweet), Finish: crisp acidity, gushing mouth, but no lasting flavors Lamarr: C+ (nothing distinguishing, okay for a $10 bottle) Hector: C+ (note: opened after a while with some character, still not fantastic) Wanda: C+ (just following lock-step)

    a little heavy (alas, a chardonnay), but decent acidity keeps it refreshing

    1. 2005 Marques de Caceres – Rioja Crianza (13%) – Color: slighty clouded ruby, Nose: strong oak, vanilla, raspberry, Taste: red berries, raspberry, “Cranberries” –Hector, a tease of oak, not as strong as nose suggests, decent finish, “Smooth and silky” –Alastor Lamarr: high B (a decent bottle, would go well with a meal, but not outstanding enough to stand alone, middle is a little sagging but finish keeps me drinking) Hector: B (leaves me hanging, not as full-bodied as I like) Alastor: B

    [Later tasting: Perhaps it's age, experience, or slight inebriation from a previous bottle of Petit Verdot, but we found this Cab Franc to be much more delectable than previous recorded.] 3. 2007 White Hall Vineyards Cabernet Franc – Monticello (13%) – Color: a slightly dark ruby, Nose – (I had an allergic reaction to Taz and Bandit at Rachel’s this weekend, so no nose notes from Lamarr), Taste: (ha, even this is clouded by my allergies), raspberries, “Chocolate covered strawberries” –Hector, not as velvety mouthfeel as the White Hall Petit Verdot, smokier than the Petit Verdot, medium length finish, no tannins (yet decanted for at least a half hour) Lamarr: Low A- Hector: A- Alastor: B+ (I know, he’s a dick when it comes to ranking) Ramón: (Chomping at the bit to do a tasting, yet is slightly ill, so refuse to sully our journal with false, speculative judgment) [Sidenote: just learned how to make the glasses sing, following 5 minutes were filled with the soundtrack of “Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind” courtesy of Riedel.]

    2007 White Hall Vineyards Cabernet Franc – Color: lighter red, Nose: Alastor – Raspberry, Lamarr – Strawberries “ooo, just whiffed a little bit of that Virginia muskiness I don’t like”, Taste: very mild tannins, decent finish, heavy on the strawberries, a little hot (you can taste the alcohol) Lamar: B+ (good, fun, easy drinking) Hector: B (too chemically for me, doesn’t feel natural) Alastor: B (good amount of tannins, but not enough pow) Addendum: Nose definitely not as musty as the other White Hall wines, I really can’t stand that Virginia nose, good fruit, best Virginia wine in recent memory.

    1. 2007 White Hall Vineyards Petit Verdot – Monticello (13%) – No time for those boring, structured, establishment-loving notes, this is the real deal. This Petit Verdot was outstanding. Bold yet smooth, lively yet velvety. The finish was long lasting, yet subtle. For such a young red, it needed zero decanting. Full, immediate, lasting pleasure. Lamarr: High A Hector: A (it was really f-ing good, “Rich, ripe, dark berries with a velvety mouth and a white chocolate finish. Absolutely no bite.”) Alastor: A- Margot: A+ (compared to what I’ve tasted before) Pearson: A (mellow, mid-length finish, subtle, not gonna smack you around, yet a pleasure to drink)

    16. 2006 White Hall Vineyard Petit Verdot – Color: dark ruby, Nose: musty, Taste: at the point not tasting anymore. Lamarr: Everyone gets an A! (courtesy of Wanda)

    3. 2006 Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz – South Australia (14.5%) – [decanting], Color: very deep, can’t get any light through, Nose: pretty fantastic, oaky, almost cedar, very woody, blackberries, perhaps a bit of chocolate, Taste: woody in the mouth, a lot of chocolate in the finish, maybe like a chocolate covered strawberry or other fruit, zesty, a little espresso, light to mid tannins (thanks to the cab!), Lamarr: A- (Now, hold up. Just because I usually give wines higher grades than my peers does not mean that I’m easy in any way…a little drunk perhaps, but not of a lower standard. I give this a high grade because I am a fan. Rock on Penfolds, rock on). Hector: B+ (he likes vanilla in wines. Argues that this has wood, but not oak. I say he’s crazy) Alastor: B+ Margot: B+ (what’s with the b-pluses? Gah!)

    2. 2008 Pollak Vineyards Pinot Gris (13.0%)- Color: pale yellow, Nose: mango, tropical fruit, Taste: very fruity, sweet, Lamarr: A (a big fan) Hector: B+ (nice citrus flavors, sweet, perhaps too sweet) Alastor: B (I don’t like it, too sweet)
