Evening Land Vineyards-Pinot Noir-Blue Label-Central Coast-California-2009-14.1% Alcohol-$21.50-A nose of muted fruit and some spice, medium garnet in color.  A medium to full bodied Pinot, with cherry, raspberry, floral notes, some spice on finish, was average, just missing something.          RP-90          WS-87          CR-87          Good with seafood, cheeses, salads.

Bodegas Volver-Tarima Hill-Estate Old Vines-Monastrell-Alicante-Spain-2010-15.0% Alcohol-$12.37-A nose of dark fruit and funk, dark black in color.  A full bodied over the top red, with blueberry, blackberry, tar and some spice on disjointed finish.  Maybe it was an off bottle but not up to the advance billing.          RP-93          CR-83          Good for cooking wine.
