    Perrin et Fils Vinsobres Les Cornuds 2007
    Sold Out $12.99
    2011 vintage available for $19.99
    I'm a little torn on this wine. The 2007 blend is actually 65 syrah-35 grenache. It's everything you think it might be: lush and velvety texture with red cherries and black fruit, finished with a slightly peppery minerality. My issue with the wine is that it did not stand up to a red wine braised short rib. It fell really, really flat against it. It was a good wine before and after our actual meal, however.

    Sebastiani Sonoma Chardonnay 2009
    Sold Out $12.99
    2012 vintage available for $13.99
    It was okay. The fruit profile was somewhat subdued, and I didn't pick up any minerality or lasting finishing as the description suggests. We drank this with herb-laced pork, tomato and fennel sauce and zucchini sauce - so nothing too crazy on the palate. The wine has an intense straw color, but the acidity is a little too much. There are much better chards out there than this, especially for the price.

    A very nice wine that goes with a lot of different food, especially during a warm summer. Perfect match with white meat or seafood and pasta. It can even stand up to a red sauce as long as it's not too rich. The wine itself has this remarkable profile of cream balanced with minerality and an earthy-woodsy palate.
