Glen Carlou Vineyards-Grand Classique-Hess Family-Cabernet Sauvignon-Petit Verdot-Malbec-Merlot-Cabernet Franc-Paarl-South Africa-14.0% Alcohol-2009-$12.79-A bit of a funky nose of some dark fruit, dark purple in color.  A medium to full bodied kitchen sink blend with cherry, plum, currants,  has just a funky edge, cigar maybe, just did not come together.  I keep trying South African wines and most seem to have a weird funk that I don’t enjoy.          RP-90          WS-87          WE-90          CR-84          Good with meats, chicken, pasta.







Beckley Family Vineyards-Zinfandel-Reserve-Napa Valley-California-2009-14.6% Alcohol-$14.99-A nose of cherry and spice, dark garnet in color.   A medium to full bodied Zin, with black cherry, raspberry, some licorice and spiced pepper on finish, some heat on finish.          NR           CR-87           Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
