    Default TN: Labor Day, with Pinot Grigio and CdRV

    Last night we joined some friends on their backporch for a nice meal.
    Another couple brought the dinner from a fundraiser at an AME Zion
    church- ribs, corn, collards, cornbread, potato salad.

    While we awaiting the ribs, we enjoyed a shrimp/pesto dip, some
    badminton, and a glass of white wine:

    2008 da Vinci Pinot Grigio
    This is better than I expected- clean, fresh pear and citrus, a little
    floral note. Moderate acidity, a bit light and short, but ok as an
    apertif. B/B-

    with the ribs, a couple of reds made it around the table:

    2007 Andre Brunel "Sabrine" Cotes du Rhone-Villages
    Big, ripe, dark fruity, some meat and earth notes. I'd prefer a touch
    more acidity, but a nice fleshy styled Southern Rhone. B

    There was also a bottle of Marietta Lot 51, I had a small sip, an
    enjoyable if simple wine just like bottle Sunday.

    After dinner, I switched back to white, and was surprised that the PG
    had lost crispness. That was explained when I realized it was a
    different PG, the 2009 Banfi "San Angelo" Pinot Grigio. PG dumbed down
    to lowest denominator, canned pears and low acids, C+

    Fun night -people matter more than wine!

    Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
    wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
    drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
    promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.*

    So very true, but are not those evenings special when food, wine and
    friendship combine in harmony just extra special.
