I sift through the bad ones and present the good ones...

Producer: Louis Felipe Edwards
Wine: Signature Series Syrah
Region: Chile
Vintage: 2008
Price: $15
Notes:  This is a full bodied red with mushroom, pepper and hints of cherry and plum on the nose.  The flavours are a nice blend of cherry, butterscotch, oak, pepper and smoke.  It's a very nice wine perfect for a relaxing evening debating global politics.  I highly recommend it.

Producer: Gray Monk
Wine: Pinot Auxerrois
Region: Okanagan Valley, BC
Vintage: 2009
Price: $17
Notes: A very enchanting and delicious wine.  The nose gives aromas of Melon, Peach, Floral notes, and Clove.  The flavour is Peach, Pineapple, slight Minerality, and Honey Dew Melon.  I highly recommend this fruit forward white for an evening spent lazily flipping through coffee table books that focus on obscure butterfly breeds.

Producer: Mirassou
Wine: Pinot Noir
Region: California
Vintage: 2009
Price: $18
Notes: Medium intensity aroma with Pepper, Cherry, and Blackberry.  The flavour is similar with Cherry, Raspberry, hints of Vanilla and Pepper.  It has a silky smooth texture and medium body.  Perfect for a night of gazing up at the stars pondering the absurdities of life.
