Linne Calodo Cellars-Nemesis-Syrah-Mourvedre-Grenache-Paso Robles-California-2006-$68.00-A nose of dark fruit and cassis, dark blackish purple in color.   A Rhone like, full bodied blend, with blackberry, blueberry, chocolate with mineral and flower notes, a hedonistic wine, decant for a couple hours.  Linne Calodo makes some of the most interesting and delicious Rhone blends in the U.S.                 RP-94                  CR-93                   Good with steak, ribs, chicken.

Bodegas Ateca S.L.-Garnacha de Fuego-Garnacha-Old Vines-Calatayud-Spain-2009-$6.99-A nose of sweet dark fruit and spice, dark purple in color.  A full bodied, a bit chunky with plum, cherries, jammy, don’t expect elegance but for this price it’s drinkable, the 2008 was better.              RP-87                WS-79                 WE-84                  CR-84       Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
