Great Wines for Any Meetup:
2007 McCall Vineyards Merlot ($24)
Russell McCall has grown grapes for more than a decade, but this is the first Merlot under his own label. A big, broad-shouldered wine, it's made by Gilles Martin, a Frenchman who also produces a very nice Merlot for Sherwood House.
2007 Wölffer Estate Late Harvest Chardonnay ($37)
Although winemaker Roman Roth crashed the Meetup (he couldn't figure out how to RSVP online), his delicious dessert wine was a welcome addition.
