Martin’s Safeway 6 for October 2011

Okay – Well overdue – So time to get back on this:

Redemption Zin – 2007 dry Creek Valley – Well, you have to have a Zin and this one works well. A little less in yer face than the 7 deadly zins but a couple of bucks more – From Alexander Valley Vineyards who also produce Sin Zin

3 x cabs (because I am not predictable at all)

2008 Robert Hall – Paso Robles

2009 Ghost Pines – Sooma / Napa / Lake county A Louis M. Martini blended cab. – the do label other varietals and the brand has its own Ghost Pines website

2009 Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Springs Cab. Sauv. – I always like to WA and OR a chance and Chateau Ste. Michelle produce a large variety of wines.

Now we get to the last 2 – A Cotes du Rhone, for when you get tired of the heavy handedness and a cheap reliable blend to stop your safeway 6 from crawling too far past $80

2007 E. Guigal – Cotes du Rhone – When you want to be reminded that French wine tastes different and the exchange rate is in our favor

2009 California Red Wine – Menage a Trois A guzzler from Folie a Deux – Open as second bottle of the evening (Or first if you are in alone). A good price wine that is widely available – Turned up as a 2 pack in CostCo the other week.

Anyone have any suggestions for Halloween Wine?

  1. Love them all Martin, especially the Zin recommendation. I just want to know when we’re doing our next wine tasting? I’m ready to share some of my current favourites too…..Halloween is passed, so will make it my Thanksgiving selection!
