We found a good one in the cellar this week.  A Norman Vineyards 2002 Paso Robles Merlot.  We purchased this wine when we were in Paso a few years back.  This Merlot was so good, I savored each sip.  The nose was bursting with dark berry fruit, blackberry, vanilla and cocoa.  The palate was filled with blackberry, black raspberry and a hint of  liqorice.  Excellent structure.

Beringer 2008 Napa Valley Chardonnay – Nose of lime and coconut makes you want to sing the song “Put the lime in the coconut.”  A nice taste of  honeydew melon with a long butterscotch finish.
