Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards-Prologue-Cabernet Sauvignon-Napa Valley-2006-$16.99-Good nose of dark fruit.  Nice dark ruby color.  A decent Cab, smooth, good mouth feel of dark fruit, not over oaked, did not enjoy it as much this time as I did last year.  Hard finding a Napa Cab at this price. The interesting difference between the 2007 (really liked the 2007) which I recently reviewed and the 2006 is quite different and a great example of how the vintage can change from year to year.          NR            CR-3.5            Good with streak, chicken, pasta.

Casa Lapostolle-Casa-Cabernet Sauvignon-Rapel Valley-Chile-2007-$12.99-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark ruby in color.  I really like most wines from this winery and this was no exception to that.  A smooth, easy drinking Cab, smoky, dark fruit, some spice, some cocoa, herbs, a great buy.        WE-90           CR-4              Good with chicken, meats, pasta.
