    Over the weekend, we had a bottle of Fat Cat 2006 Merlot paired with:

    BBQed Salmon (Olive Oil, Garlic, Cajun, Salt, Pepper, Lemon, Mrs. Dash Spicy Season)
    BBQed Prawns (Same seasonings and olive oil, but with dill in the mix)
    Squash and Zuchinni cooked in olive oil on the BBQ

    The Merlot was awesome with this! The fiancee and I each had a glass, then headed out to the bookstore for a couple of hours. We got back home and had another couple of glasses while watching Grey's Anatomy. I really dug the Merlot, because I treated it like I would a single malt scotch while consuming it. Sip slow and savor! I didn't even finish the large glass I had poured with dinner, and let the rest of the bottle last over two days. And, not to mention - the taste was amazing! I enjoyed how boozy and warm it was, reminding me of how I enjoy my Russian Imperial Stouts!

    Last night at dinner, we paired a 2006 Puerto Viejo Malbec from Mendoza Argentina with BBQed chicken. Fantastic to say the least! Tonight, we'll be doing BBQed chicken again with a Fat Cat Chardonnay.

    let's see.. in the last few weeks I have had:

    Dagueneau:

    2005/06 (?) pur sang
    2005/06 (?) silex
    2002 Buisson Renard

    yeah, I suck. The (?) means I forgot the vintage. One was an 05 and the other was an 06. I think the Silex was the 06, but not sure.

    Was treated to a healthy sampling of Jayson wines last night. The pinot was very nice. I'd recommend anything from them, and the Jayson label is cheaper than the Pahlmeyer.

    Two excellent wines, one white, one red, both blends, both produced here in Malibu.

    I think the grapes for the red were even grown in Malibu.

    Who knew?

    I was at the Costco in Cypress over the weekend and found out that they had the 2008 Sofia rose (a Francis Ford Coppola offering) for $11.69 / bottle; The Ralphs near my house carries it for $19.99.

    http://www.franciscoppolawinery.com/

    It's a fruit-forward, refreshing wine with a little snap of tartness on the finish, and has an appealing deep red color. Have had it with steaks and it works nicely with the ahi that I grill.

    It would seem to be a good candidate for the Thanksgiving table as well (the tartness would serve the same function as cranberry sauce without overpowering the turkey).

    Nice wine for a nice price.

    I may need to go back for more...

    At lunch in El Segundo today, I stumbled upon this liquor store:

    Hollymain Liquor, El Segundo, CA : Reviews and maps - Yahoo! Local

    What a find!
    Cakebread, Nickel & Nickel, Sea Smoke, even Joseph Phelps Insignia (2005 though, not my beloved 2004) among others.

    You can rarely find those labels in restaurants and wine stores let alone liquor stores.

    If you're in the South Bay and need a great bottle, go here!

    Next time you are at Costco try the Ghost Pines. Its 14.99 and worth every cent.

    Trader Joes is carrying a private label "VINTJS" central coast syrah bottled by Robert Lindquist of Qupe. I do not think it is extra Qupe juice but for $7 a bottle it has good fruit and is most serviceable.

    The two central coast TJ's by me have been sold out or usually only have a few bottles when I visit so the word is out. BTW, there is also a Napa syrah selling for $10 that has the same label so look carefully.
