    Beaulieu Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011 wine review by (PB)

    Black Cherry hue with aromas of bold,stinky dark berries and some funky, off aromas of damp basement. There is a slight suggestion of pomegranate and musty cigar box. Palate--Unique first impression of inky, solid fruit with nice chocolate tinged berry beam mid palate, and a tasty little "something" that again is unique on the finish.

    Robert Hall Syrah (Paso Robles) 2011 wine review by (PB)

    Black Cherry hue with aromas of mulled blackberries with Christmas spice, and a touch of cherry cream. Palate--Tightly wound at the moment with woody smokey presence and austere plum and dark berry fruit. I don't remember what I paid for this but I am sure I bought it because it was on sale. Reference price seems to range about the $18 mark so I probably found it for $12 or so.
