Marchesi Di Barolo-Antiche Cantine-Barolo-Nebbiolo-Italy-2005-$45.00-A nose of some funk and sweet raspberries, dark garnet in color.   A full bodied Barolo, with raspberries,  cedar and spice, good food wine.               WS-91                 CR-89                    Good with meats, chicken, pasta.

Trentadue Winery-La Storia-Cuvee 32-Sangiovese-Merlot-Montepulciano- Malbec- Petite Sirah-Syrah-Alexander Valley-Sonoma County-California-2009-$17.99-A nose of heat and dark fruit fruits, dark garnet in color.  A full bodied kitchen sink blend that was austere and had too much heat that overcame the dark fruit, maybe I drank it too early, not enough decanting..off bottle, had enjoyed a previous vintage much more.   Nice labeled bottle.                   NR               CR-84                  Was good as cooking wine.
