Rodney Strong Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Blueberries, cherries, and vanilla waft up from the glass. Tart cherries and sweet blueberries, with blackberry and oak in the background, make up the palate. A touch of raspberry adds a little zing to the finish. Muscular tannins and a meaty body make a vigorous mouthful, that would pair well with lamb chops. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH

Lula Gewurztraminer

The nose is highly perfumed, with aromas of white flowers, pears, and a hint of coconut. The fruit is more simple on the palate, apple and a touch of banana, with lime zest finish. Drink with fried chicken. Recommended. 87 points. DBH
