Dessert Wine

Domaine Madeloc Banyuls Cirera 2005, A.C., France: Vintages Wine Panel: Many consider Banyuls to be France's answer to Port. Made in a sweet, fortified style, it is rich and robust with tons of dried fruit, spice, raisin and vanilla aromas and flavors. My note: A lovely rich wine. 48041 17% S 500 mL  $25.85 Score: 90/100.

Red Wine

Haras de Pirque Equus Carménère 2006, Maipo Valley, Chile: Vintages Wine Panel: The impressive Haras de Pirque property features both a world-class winery and a stable for raising thoroughbred horses. It's not suprising to learn then that its modern, gravity-flow winery is in the shape of a horseshoe and that its 'Equus' range of wines takes its name from the Latin word for horse. Right out of the gate, this Carménère is fresh and juicy, with layers of black fruit, mineral, tobacco and sweet herbs, supported by fine tannins. My note: This red wine has rich notes of coffee, oak and black fruit. Incredible value! 55491 15% XD 750 mL  $12.75 Score: 89/100. February 2, 2008 Full Review
