Quarles Harris Vintage Port 2011 review by (PB)

Inky almost black hue with crimson rim. *Bouquet–sweet rising aromas of dark fruit macerated in brandy and a raisiny tin.  (wine is very cold from the cellar) *Palate–Silky plush, tarry, thickish texture with huge dense fruit full of rich raisiny goodness.  Finish lingers on and on. I paid $45 for this at a Trader Joes…

Produttori del Barbaresco 2011 review by (PB)

Cherry hue showing a hint of age with spicy cherry notes in the bouquet with a touch of cocoa, licorice, and cedar. Palate–Bright, light bodied,the taste of a mature wine is prominent, cedar galore, with subdued cherry fruity and mocha at the end. I paid around $40 for this and expected a bit more out…
