So, here’s the deal, folks. I’m at the 2010 Wine Bloggers Conference and they’re having us speed date with wines, kind of. We’re seated at tables of 8 and wineries come over and pour a white wine for us (tomorrow is reds).

We have five minutes -five – to evaluate the wine and write our impressions in a stream of consciousness format. You can also follow me taste through these wines via Twitter @swirlgirl_jy.

Wine 1: Molly Dooker The Violinist 2009 Verdelho. Citrus notes with a bit much oak. Could use a little more acidity. $25? Too high for me.

Wine 2: 2008 House Wine. Blend led by Chardonnay. Light gold, floral aroma (thanks to Muscat) caramelized stone fruits. $13? Yes.

Wine 3: Dry Creek Vineyards 2009 Dry Chenin Blanc. Light straw, pineapple aromas, guava flavors, good acid. Not complex, worth $12. WBC#10
