Values from Vinum Cellars

This week, I was able to taste a couple of wines from Vinum Cellars, a small producer in California putting out some decent juice for a reasonable price.  These wines are all about value and fun:
It sounds cliche, but the 2007 CNW Chenin Blanc would be a great white to sip out on the porch on a breezy spring afternoon.  Light and floral with citrus fruit, it has a mellow quality without the bracing acidity of other white wines in the price range.  The CNW stands for “Chard-No-Way,” and with nine months barrel aging, this really does come across as a nice altrenative to the ocean of so-so California chardonnay out there, and at $10.99, it’s all the better.
Another great value from Vinum Cellars is their 2006 Pets Petite Sirah.  A little vanilla from the wood on the nose, then tight berry fruit with less tannin than you might expect from a petite sirah.  This wine delivers LOTS of bang for the buck.  Plus, a portion of the proceeds are donated to the San Francisco SPCA animal shelter Tanker Memorial Fund.  Usually $10.99, Binny’s has the 2006 Pets on sale for $9.99 all month.
