2008 Kenwood Jack London Sonoma Valley CA 14.5% $24

This is smoky and dark, with a nice blend of baking spices, ancho chili, licorice and black fruit. Rather rich and very smooth in the mouth, this packs in lovely fresh plum and raspberry fruit layered over well judged tannins. There’s a nice accent note of wood spice, vanilla and cedar that builds on the back end then relaxes across the raspberry finish. Highlighted by juicy acidity. Nice fruit persistence. This shows some nice restraint. 89pts

    With a little persistence, you can often find the St. Supery for under $20, even as low as $16. It's a buyer's market for wine right now, and the "value" Napa Cabs and even some of the stars can be had for a great price.

    The Paso reviews go live tomorrow. A great set of wines that really outperformed.

    Agreed, some of these wines are just not moving, and not due to quality or value.
