Luis Felipe Edwards Reserva Malbec 2009, Colchagua Valley, Chile  236497 14% XD 750 mL  $14.95. August 6, 2010 Full Review
Valpantena A Amarone Della Valpolicella 2007, D.O.C., Veneto, Italy: Vintages Wine Panel: Medium deep-ruby colour with a hint of garnet. Pretty perfumed nose featuring mocha, raspberry, leather, lavender and spice. Dry and delicious without any over-dried fruit qualities. The structure is very solid. The fruit rests upon a foundation of ripe tannins. This is a mouth-filling, full-bodied wine with a great deal of elegance and style. The long finish gives the palate much to contemplate, such as the next sip! My note: Rich and full-bodied; delivers on the Amarone flavour-packed promise. Black cherry liqueur, dark spices and smoke. Long finish. Drink: 2010-2018. 179366 15% D 750 mL  $31.95 Score: 89/100. August 21, 2010 Full Review
José Maria da Fonseca José De Sousa 2006, Vinho Regional Alentejano, Portugal: Vintages Wine Panel: Deep ruby. Possesses aromas of cassis, ripe berries, mulberry, bell pepper, and herbs. The flavours carry the aromas deeper, with added notes of oak and earth. Medium to full bodied, with velvety tannins and good length, this dry Portuguese red shows some complexity. You can keep it for a few years, or savour it tonight. My note: Juicy purple plums and berries with some great depth of flavour, especially for this price. Full-bodied and smooth, quaffable! 396689 13.50% XD 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 88/100. August 21, 2010 Full Review
