    Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
    Sold Out $29.99
    2011 vintage available for $39.99
    Wine makers Craig and Kathryn Hall bought the old Bergfeld winery in St. Helena and converted it to their own winery in 2003. They make classic Bordeaux style wines in two lines, the Napa Valley Collection and the Artisan Collection. The Napa Valley Cab is a blend of 82 percent cabernet sauvignon, 13 percent merlot, 4 percent petit verdot and 1 percent cabernet franc. Here is what it tastes like. Look: Slightly brighter than the first, the Hall is deep purple, opaque with a lavender edge. Smell: I had to sniff deep to get a good smell of this reserved wine, but found blackberry, ripe strawberry and spice. Taste: This is a bowl of stewed fruit, extracted and dark. It tastes of cooked blueberry, chocolate, tobacco, and cedar. Read my full review: http://whatareyoudrinking.net/2010/12/when-you-just-feel-like-paying-a-lot-for-a-glass-of-wine-cru-wine-bar/

    Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut
    $22.00 $19.99
    Save $2.01 (9%)
    Crémant d’Alsace Brut Lucien Albrecht is made from 100 percent Pinot Blanc grapes grown in clay-chalky soil. It is made méthode Champenoise with malolactic fermentation. Here is what you can expect. Look: Northern sunlight on a December afternoon, pale yellow, bright and transparent. This one has slightly larger bubbles than the first streaming with mid frequency for a gentle mousse that disappeared quickly. Smell: A cold winter’s day with dusty, minerally limestone and faint honey suckle. Taste: A bite of fresh grape fruit and tapioca with a silky-smooth, balanced feel. The Lucien Albrecht has a mid-length, slightly bitter finish. Read my full review here: http://whatareyoudrinking.net/2010/12/budget-bubbles-select-a-delicious-sparkling-wine-for-your-holiday-party/
