Whitehall Lane Winery-Leonardini Vineyard-Cabernet Sauvignon-Napa Valley-California-2003-$51.25-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark purple in color, with a classic Cab aromas.   A smooth, elegant, full bodied Cab, with black currants, blueberry, cassis, chocolate and spice, with a long delicate finish, a very good wine.   Decant for a couple hours, watch out for the glass cork or you’ll bust your corkscrew.             WE-90                  CR-92                   Good with meats, chicken, pasta.

Ukiah Cellars-Nelson Vineyard-Cabernet Sauvignon-Mendocino-Sustainably Farmed-California-2007-$12.23-A nose of dark fruit, dark amber in color,  medium to full bodied, dry and disjointed.  I really enjoyed this wine about one year ago, maybe this was an off bottle, some dark fruit and spice but very astringent, not enjoyable.                  NR                    CR-80                   Good with choosing another bottle to open.
