Henry’s Drive-Pillar Box Red-Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot-Padthaway-Australia-2006-$9.99-A spicy nose of dark fruit, dark purple in color.  A mouth filling, but semi smooth, black cherry, cassis, a decent red that gets value for price level.  I with trend towards Wine Spectator rating vs. Parker’s.            RP-91            WS-85            CR-3.5          Good with chicken, pasta, meats.

Casa Lapostolle-Cuvee Alexandre-Apalta Vineyard-Cabernet Sauvignon-Colchagua Valley-Chile-2007-$17.99-A nice nose of sweet dark fruit, dark crimson in color.   A big mouth feel, dark fruit, black cherry, currants, meaty, delivers allot for this price point.  I really enjoy most wines from this winery whose founders are the Marnier Family who make Grand Marnier, especially the Cuvee Alexander brand.              WS-90            RP-87             WE-89             CR-4             Good with steak, chicken, ribs.
