Nova Wines-Norma Jeane-11th Vintage-A Young Merlot-California-2008-$10.99-A sweet nose of spice and dark fruit, dark amber in color.  A smooth, easy drinking red, a little spice, blackberry, nothing complex but good for a mid week wine.  I am a Marilyn Monroe collector so I buy for the bottle (also notice lips on cork), since it’s drinkable all the better.          NR              CR-3.5        Good with chicken, pasta, salads.

Line Shack Winery-Cabernet Sauvignon-San Antonio Valley-California-2006-$14.99-A typical Cab nose of dark currants, dark, good color.  A smooth red, black cherry, currants, vanilla but not over oaked.  A good value for a Cab from an area in California that I was not familiar with.           NR          CR-4          Good with steak, chicken, ribs.
