The 2009 Apothic Red is a good red wine to serve at parties because it's flavors will not only work well with a variety of foods, but the flavors are likely to be acceptable to preferences to a variety of wine drinkers. It's hard to find a wine that enough different people can enjoy but the 2009 Apothic Red is probably a good option to try. However, it may be better to avoid sweeter dishes when drinking the Apothic Red.
The 2008 Dynamite Cabernet Sauvignon is a fairly dry, medium-to-full bodied red wine that is high in tannins. The acidity is decent enough but the dryness and strong tannins cause it to really need to be tempered by food - it's not really a wine for sipping on its own. If it weren't for the harshness of the tannins, this Dynamite Cabernet Sauvignon would probably be a much better wine that would pair well with a wider variety of foods.
The 2008 Trumpeter Torrontes has a smooth, creamy citrus flavor. It's an off-dry, light-to-medium bodied Torrontes with debatable acidity. By debatable I mean that I thought its acidity was weak but my wife found it crisp. It's also a relatively sweet wine. This Torrontes has very moderate aromas of lemon, maybe lemon zest, and other citrus.
The 2006 Seven Heavenly Chards Chardonnay is a medium-to-full bodied dry wine with smooth acidity. Like the aromas, the flavors of this chardonnay are most like spiced apple pie, some butter, and perhaps some citrus notes. The alcohol can be fairly pronounced so this is a chardonnay that should be drunk well chilled.
The Paso a Paso Verdejo 2008 is a deep golden color, almost honey-like with a medium color-depth and nice clarity. The Paso a Paso Verdejo 2008 has some pretty early acidity that leaves quickly; after that the flavors emerge — mostly lemon and some mineral around the edges. The intensity is moderate and smooth; while the wine is dry overall there is a bit of sweetness to the flavor.
