Had several bottles last night. Started off with a Gomey suggestion, N.V. Laurent-Perrier Champagne Brut L.P. Domaine de Tours-sur-Marne. Brightly acid, apples, a hint of toast. Then opened a 2007 Turley Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard. This was killer, everything a Central Coast Zin should be but not overblown. Raspberry jam with hints of dill. Then we had a 2009 Sea Smoke Southing and a Perception Chard (can't remember the vintage). I picked the Perception because the other couple are not real wine drinkers and Perception is a classic "buttery popcorn" style Chard so I thought it would go well with her entree. She thoroughly enjoyed it but could not pick butter out in the least. I think she has no sense of smell as this is a wine that overdoes the mallos picked for that very reason. Either way, she enjoyed it and that's all that mattered.
