Puzelat-Bonhomme Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2011
On a gray day, this is a wine that will bring a little sunshine to your life. It's bright and fruity, with zippy notes of citrus and cut grass. If this wine doesn’t cheer you up, there’s always kitten pictures.
Qupé Central Coast Syrah 2010
Among my friends, there’s not one who’s tried this wine and not loved it right away — it has become our go-to wine for a get-together that demands something on the other side of $10. It boasts gorgeous plummy fruit, mild tannins, and a punch of black pepper that I dare you not to adore.
