The Hogue Cellars-Merlot-Reserve-Wahluke Slope-Washington State-2006-$21.66-A nose of black cherry and spice, dark garnet in color.  A smooth, full bodied Merlot, with back cherry, currants, with Asian spices, a easy drinking wine, one of the better Merlots I have had in a while.                 WS-90                WE-91                  CR-90                      Good with meats, chicken, pasta.

Kendall-Jackson Vineyards & Winery-Vintner’s Reserve-Cabernet Sauvignon-Sonoma and Napa Counties-California-2008-$14.09-A nose of dark fruits, dark amber in color.  A very dry, medium to full bodied Cab, with blackberry, cassis, plum and some toast with spice.  Was disappointed after WE review, way, way too dry on the palate.                  WE-92                 CR-87                 Good with ribs, burgers, chicken.
