90 • Domaine du Penlois 2006 Moulin-a-Vent $15. Best Buy.
Garnet color. Sweet chocolate cherry bon bon, strawberry puree, and golden raisin aromas follow through on a silky, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with excellent depth of fruit and balance. Finishes with a long berry, toasty cedar and mineral kissed finish. A superb sipper or table wine. (tasted on Nov-24-2008)

Deep garnet color. Spicy aromas of plum pudding and blueberry pie a la mode follow through on a soft, supple entry to a dry medium body with tart crabapple and cocoa notes. Finishes with a tart, dusty mineral and nutshell fade. A sturdy table wine to pair with veal chops. (tasted on Nov-24-2008)
