2008 Valley of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Review


We are big fans of this winery in Sonoma County. This was our first time trying the cabernet and it did not disappoint. It is not over the top or very heavy and has a great finish. With hints of berry and a little pepper you should definitely buy this if you see it. We purchased this bottle at our local wine store for under $20.

Overall TheXPRT Rating – 85 out of 100

2006 Andretti Napa Valley Merlot Wine Review


If you get a chance, you have to stop by the Andretti Winery in Napa Valley. The wine takes its inspiration from the distinguished career of its namesake and founder, Mario Andretti. We purchased this 2006 Merlot on our most recent trip to the vineyard. While a little off the beaten path in Napa it is well worth the stop. Most of these wines will be fruit forward, well balanced and have a great finish. This particular Merlot did not let us down. We paired it with a great grilled ribeye and it was fantastic. With a long and smooth finish we will definitely be purchasing more in the future.

While around $25 a bottle it is well worth the stop.

Overall TheXPRT Rating – 83 out of 100
