    Once again, the Lirac region comes through with a QPR winner. There seems to be a lot of good wines from this overlooked AOC. Give it some air to experience the roasted herbs and spice notes. It's a baby CdP at a fraction of the price.

    Another outstanding Rhone from the infamous 2007 vintage. The nose is extremely fresh and vibrant with notes of raspberries, strawberries, cherries, cranberries and a touch of smoke. There's so much fruit on the nose that you'll anticipate a fruit bomb, but it isn't over the top at all. It's elegant, we'll integrated and delicious. Cherries come through in the mid-palate and the finish is rich and peppery. This is off-the-charts on the QPR scale.

    A great bargain! Very vibrant and fresh with hints of cherry, smoke and roasted herbs on the nose. The palate is velvety at first and firms up on the mid-palate and finish; leaving a lingering finish of plum and dark chocolate. I'm obviously a fan of Roussillon blends, and this one hits the spot.

    I was expecting a bit more punch from this wine when I saw the blend of grapes. The nose was rather tight and subtle with traces of dustiness and ripe red fruit. The first taste was nicely focused and had a nice freshness and juicy quality. The mid-palate transitioned to cherry flavors and something slightly bitter; perhaps dark chocolate. The finish had a bit of grip and spice, which didn't last very long. I think it would have benefited from decanting, since it opened up the second day.

    This is a very simple pinot noir that will appeal to a lot of palates. The nose has a dusty, muddy, smokey quality with hints of flowers, cherries and cranberries. Sweet fruit is apparent on entry and the mid-palate doesn't change very much. Lots of cherry juice with a dose of strawberries and cranberries. The finish is fairly short and the tannins are very mild and a bit sweet. Definitely a friendly, fruity pinot that is very one-dimensional ... but extremely drinkable. It paired very well with BBQ chicken and strip steak with a Chipotle sauce. Notes from www.paliwineco.com ... 500 Cases Produced 13.8% Alcohol The second of the two Pali AVA blends, this is a very pretty and balanced wine easily associated with the Russian River Valley. Deep red cherries, lavender, rose petals and herbs on the nose. Juicy, rounded mouth feel. A bit tight now but should open up nicely by release.

    I bought this along with the "Pali Bluffs 2007" cuvée from the Russian River Valley. For my palate, the "Huntington 2007" from Santa Barbara is superior, with more concentrated fruit, darker fruits and a longer finish. In a blind tasting, it could easily be mistaken for a Cabernet. My notes match the description from the web site to the letter ... so I've included the wine maker's comments. Notes from www.paliwineco.com ... 250 Cases Produced 14.4% Alcohol The first of the Pali AVA blends, the Huntington is ripe, lush and concentrated. Lifted aromatics of ripe plums, earth, wild blackberries and white pepper. A medium weight wine with round and lush mouth feel. Fruit-driven with layers of juicy red cherries, cranberries, toasty oak and sweet tannin.
