Skyy Key Lime Pie Martini Rockfish Grill 8030 Renaissance Parkway #905 The Streets at Southpoint, Durham Website Made with Skyy Vodka, this drink is a good addition to my list of key lime pie martinis in the area.

Wine: Turning Leaf Pinot Noir 2007 Region: Germany This pinot noir has a vibrant nose of Saint Anne’s cherry.  Until this glass, it had been a long time since I’d had a bright, light-bodied wine that didn’t make me pucker.  It’s very tasty, with plenty of mildly tart cherries to plop in your mouth.  Have

Wine:  Bella Sera 2007 Pinot Grigio Region:  Dollo Venizie, Italy This pinot grigio smells of sweet and crisp honeydew. It tastes minerally with some undertones of green pear and a dash of vanilla thrown in for good measure.  There’s also an aftertaste like you’ve just eaten a tart lemon cream cookie.  I’d like another, please.
