2009 Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee, Sonoma County, CA, $24 (S) – Rating 88

A good-value go-to red blend. Very easy drinking with soft and inviting tannins. A nice nose of blueberry, cherry and dark spice. On the palate resides the same dark fruit and cherry flavors with added notes of coca, tobacco box and espresso on the finish. Best after decanting for about 15 minutes. Buy This Wine

A rather ripe Pinot offering a nose of rich dark fruit and black cherry with hints of saddle leather and tobacco box. Give this wine a little decanter time. Once open, flavors of dark cherry, ripe plum, espresso and forest floor are integrated with notes of earthiness, bright acidity and supple tannins. Buy This Wine
