Wine recommendations

Seghesio Arneis 2004. A complex delightful white, full of body, surprisingly good.

Ponzi Tavola Pinot Noir 2005. Young and watery, but full of flavor. A quality wine, depending on price.

Rodney Strong Sonoma Country Chardonnay 2005. Not exceptional but pure. A well-crafted delight.

Obviously I'm not a pro at writing wine reviews--writing about food and drink is akin to singing about smelling or dancing about writing. The comparitors that wine reviews often use (hints of oak and maple complement this melon-raspberry palate with an asphault bouquet) often seem akin to hieroglyphics. If I recommend a wine, it means just that I find it enjoyable and drinkable, and you might too.
