Nicholas Cole Cellars-Michele-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot-Cabernet Franc-Petit Verdot-Walla Walla Valley-Washington State-2005-$22.22-A nose of cassis and spice, dark black purple in color. A full bodied blend, with blackberry, cassis, tar and smoke with spicy oak, a big mouthful and long finish, would buy more at this price.                     RP-89                  WS-92                    WE-90                  CR-92             Good with meats, chicken, pasta.

O‚ÄôLeary Walker Wines-Blue Cutting Road-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot-Clare Valley-Australia-2005-$11.52-A nose of heat and dark fruit, dark black in color.  A full bodied, very hot blend, the 14.5% alcohol seems more like 17%.  Even after an hour plus decant the heat was over the top, with black currants, cassis, and chocolate, got a bit better the second day.                   NR                  CR-84                   Good with ribs, chicken, pasta.
