    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.

    Ruby hue with tantalizing aromas of sweet raspberry syrup, candy apple coating, sweet spices, Palate--Steely front with vigorous light cherry and raspberry with a palate scraping acidity and a gentle finish of light red berries. I don't remember what I paid for this but it seems to sell for $8-11.

    Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino 2006 Wine Review (NW)

    Tasting notes: Gorgeous sweet cherry and spice on the nose Full bodied on the palate Dense finish that's earthy with red berries, tobacco, and spice Summary: Excellent wine! I could have waited longer with this one, but it didn't disappoint with a few years of cellaring. It has an amazing nose that's fragrant and full of power, emanating from the glass with remarkable strength and purity.

    19 Crimes 2012 "Red Wine" wine review by (PB)

    Brilliant ruby hue with aromas of dark berry, ripe plum, cigar box, and sweet spice with a touch of chocolate cake. Palate--Light mouth feel, sturdy construction with forth right flavors of sharp black berry, blue berry, and cocoa nuances. This Aussie red is a Shiraz blend. Shiraz is also known as Durif in case you ever see that on a label and wonder what the heck it is.
