2008 Cade Cabernet Sauvignon

A CaliCultCab, and if that's your bag, at just fifty bucks this is Highly Recommended. If it's not, then you're buying the wrong bottle. Drink with people who don't know you bought it at Costco. DH

2007 Merryvale Pinot Noir

Dark cherries, cola, a touch of cranberries, and some mushrooms are on the palate, all with a background of spice, wood, and a teriyaki-like umami. Tannins are fine and sweet. It does not offer delicacy or flow with multiple layers of complexity, just gives you a whack of sweet fruit right in the face. Drink it with a grilled double-thick stuffed pork chop.
