Altamura Vineyards & Winery-Cabernet Sauvignon-Napa Valley-California-1996-$42.00-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark brick garnet in color.   A full bodied aged Cab, with blackberry, black currants, some cherry, tobacco, not as bold as bottle I tried last year, but still good.                WS-88              CR-90               Good with steak, chicken, pasta.

Oriel Wines-Sygnet-Shiraz-McLaren Vale-Limited Series-Australia-2004-$29.98-A nose of some funk and spice, dark purple in color.  A full bodied Shiraz, not much fruit, mulberry, spice, past it’s prime, heat was still there.  Very disappointing for a wine John Duval made, not up to the high ratings.                   WS-91                  WE-93                 CR-84                Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
