Hunt Cellars-Cab-Ovation-Cabernet Sauvignon-Reserve-Destiny Vineyards-Mt. Christo Block-Paso Robles-California-2001-$29.98-A nose of black cherry and spices, dark garnet in color.  A smooth, full bodied Cab, with currants, wild cherries, vanilla and spice finish, there is some bottle variation where one bottle is more Bordeaux like and the next is bolder, this one was in the bold category, a solid Cab.              NR               CR-90                 Good with steak, chicken, pasta.

 

 

 

ravenswood barricia CORKSCREWs REVIEWs

Ravenswood Winery-Zinfandel-Barricia Vineyard-Sonoma Valley-California-2007-$25.98-A nose of dark cherry, dark purple in the core of the glass, lightening to a bit of a garnet red on the edges.  This single vineyard Zin is medium to full bodied, with a long finish.  The alcohol comes through, but not too hot.  The wine is robust and full-flavored, with a touch of dark fruit, but more obviously, a smoky, meaty element, a very good buy at the sale price of $15.                 WS-84             WE-93               CR-88               Good with ribs, chicken, pasta.
