Behrens & Hitchcock Winery-July Fourteenth-Unfiltered-Syrah-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot-Napa Valley-California-2004-$46.25-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark black purple in color.  A full bodied dry red blend, smooth, with blackberries, blueberries, some minerals and spice, alcohol (15.6%) is well integrated, decant, a very good wine.                     RP-92-94                   CR-92                 Good with steak, chicken, pasta.

Nova Wines Inc.-Marilyn-Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon-Napa Valley-California-2008-$22.49-A nose of dark fruits, dark amber in color.  A medium to full bodied Merlot blend, disjointed, with some blackberry, cherry, average at best, buy it for the label not the wine.                  WS-79               WE-86                     CR-83                       Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
