Trefethen Family Vineyards-Double T-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot-Cabernet Franc-Petit Verdot-Malbec-Napa-California-2006-$17.99-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark ruby in color.  A full bodied easy drinking blend, black cherry, black currants, spicy oak.  I visited Trefethan’s in March, beautiful property and tasting room, a must visit if you are going to Napa.        NR           CR-4           Good with steak, chicken, pasta.

Reserva de la Tierra-Vega Escal-Priorat-Carignan-Grenache-Shiraz-Spain-2005-$12.99-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark almost black ruby in color.  Blackberry, blueberry, jammy, smooth with chocolate and vanilla on backend, was a $30 wine, now a great bargain.    I have had this wine a few times over the past year with similar results, this time it’s right on the edge of being a bit past it’s peak.           RP-90             WE-88   CR-4            Good with steak, burgers, pasta.
