 Tasted by sbfireman on 4/22/2013 & rated 90 points: Great QPR - solid juice. Well balanced - soft in the glass the way this wine should be. Drink now (1200 views)
 Tasted by Redguy on 3/11/2013 & rated 88 points: Full body, low acid, ball-o-fruit type of syrah that doesn't have much in the way of nuance or savory type elements but is an excellent wine for the price. High quality daily drinker. (1285 views)
 Tasted by Redguy on 9/19/2012: Soft, ripe, fleshy, round, open, and oh yeah... quite good. Probably high 80's tonight, but at this price who cares. Good Juice. (1726 views)
 Tasted by Redguy on 7/15/2012 & rated 88 points: Soft, open, ripe. The needle may be closer to simple than complex but this is excellent wine for the $. I'd like more structure but that's not going to happen for $13. (1791 views)
 Tasted by STM82 on 6/16/2012 & rated 90 points: well polished stuff. Consistent with prior notes. (1686 views)
 Tasted by Central Coast Wino on 6/10/2012 & rated 90 points: Paired with grilled tri-tip. Just excellent! Andrew hit a home run with this vintage. An outstanding QPR. One of the all-time best Syrah values under $15. This is a typical Andrew Murray style, just not as heavy as some of the single-vineyard offerings. It has the pepper, smoke, and fruit that I've come to expect from Andrew. (828 views)
 Tasted by Redguy on 5/19/2012 flawed bottle: High VA (939 views)
 Tasted by STM82 on 5/2/2012 & rated 91 points: Still one of the best QPR's around. Soy sauce, liquid smoke, asphalt, tar, and some molasses. There are dark berries in the background that are still sprinkled with fresh cracked black pepper and cocoa. (803 views)
 Tasted by Redguy on 4/16/2012: Party pop. Paired with grilled tri-tip... well received by all. Grapey with welcome nuance and spice. Fleshy and mouthcoating. Excellent qpr. (880 views)
 Tasted by Redguy on 3/23/2012: Gut reaction, I'd say that was a 90 point bottle of syrah I just drank for $13. Nah, couldn't be, could it? (840 views)
 Tasted by Redguy on 3/20/2012 & rated 89 points: Wow, all that for $13? Soft ripe black fruits, smokey tar, mocha, minerals,... and an extra helping of goodness. Cali in demeaner but a touch Aussie as well. Soft and meaty yet with good acids and just enough structure to keep it focused. Really peaked after an hour of air. Lots to like here, especially for the price. Unmistakably good syrah. Unmistakable value. (846 views)
 Tasted by discotrog on 2/24/2012 & rated 92 points: incredible value . really fresh bluberry and lavender lighter tannin, impecable balance...wow (862 views)
 Tasted by STM82 on 2/17/2012 & rated 91 points: What a delightful treat! This wine is probably one of the best QPR's ever IMHO! Dark berry with black and white pepper, a touch of vanilla, a bit of graphite intertwined in everything, and sprinkled with ground cocoa nibs! What a great little wine for 11 bucks! It has great complexity, depth, and backbone to keep everything in balance. (951 views)
 Tasted by maxmanx on 1/26/2012: I enjoyed, but less enthusiastic than others. At this price point, I prefer the 6th Sense Syrah. (1141 views)
 Tasted by drdebs on 1/25/2012 & rated 90 points: Really exceptional for $16. Balanced between fruit, herbs, and minerality this rich Syrah is redolent of black fruits (black currants, blackberry), with herbal, smoky spice, and even a bit of stone in the clean, crisp aftertaste. A lot of wine for $16. (1013 views)
 Tasted by STM82 on 1/25/2012 & rated 90 points: Solid syrah... Hits all the right notes and for the price, is an incredible deal. Hard to find any noticeable flaws or shortcomings. (1024 views)
 Tasted by STM82 on 12/24/2011 & rated 91 points: Deep, complex, and a great QPR. Fruitforward with a bit of spice at the end. On night two there were more earthy notes. Hard to find a better deal. (1336 views)
 Tasted by STM82 on 11/29/2011 & rated 89 points: Great qpr and all around wine. (1389 views)
 Tasted by tlvarga on 11/23/2011 & rated 89 points: A rich and fulfilling wine with dark cherry and spice. Big enought for beef but great on its own as well. A superb value! (1275 views)
 Tasted by STM82 on 11/7/2011 & rated 89 points: Dark purple with a nose of smoke and raspberries. This is a wonderful QPR wine with red and blue fruit paving the way to a good minerality and touch of smoke on the finish. Good acidity for such a dense body. Paired well with a spicy dinner.

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
