Four Vines Winery-The Sophisticate-Zinfandel-Sonoma County-2006-$22.99-A big nose of zesty berries and spice, dark purple in color.  A full bodied but smooth, in it’s prime drinking time, berries, pepper, plum, smoke and dark chocolate.   Visited their tasting room in Paso Robles a few years back, they make very good Zins and Syrahs.           WS-92           CR-4.5           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, the last bottle I thought it had peaked, changed my mind with this bottle, it still has it’s legs.           RP-90          WE-88         CR-4            Good with steak, burgers, pasta.
