2008 Villa Creek Bête Noire

Paso Robles Syrah Blend, Syrah more

5/22/2015 - BVal wrote: 92 points

Color: dark dark ruby core -> fairly dense ruby rim. Gorgeous bouquet of graphite, roasted cherries and a smokey, almost peaty earthiness. Palate is bright and lively with excellent acidity and showing off that pretty, roasted/grilled cherry fruit. This is a wonderful amalgam of the best of Syrah and Mourvedre showing off a little leather, gaminess and a good dollop of forest floor. Cris Cherry always seems to have a deft touch with Mourvedre and it shows very well here. Delicious now and well into the future, this is certainly worth a search to find.

PnP at a restaurant. No detailed notes. Dry, rich, full-bodied. Spicy and earthy. Really nice wine. Great now, but no hurry.

Rich, ripe, extracted, hot; surprisingly jammy for being 50% Grenache; needs bold flavors to not overpower food.

Shows signs of rich black fruit a dark berry that is difficult to distinguish. Hints of cocoa and maybe a touch of leather on the back end. Finish is a it short. Very easy to drink. Time to drink up if you have any left

Haven't been a big fan of Villa Creek but this bottle is the first step in changing my mind. Quite large, pitch dark coloring and viscous, had to brush my teeth twice. Flavor and finish pleasing to the palate and decent balance.

Under screwcap. This has aged beautifully. Was worried that this would be too big, but it is exceptionally well-balanced. A bit of barnyard/funk, brambly fruit, deep, complex, very long, complete finish. At $45 on release in 2006 this wasn't cheap, but I wish I had bought more.

held up really well, no signs of age. If you like a fruit forward, well balanced wine this is the wine to drink. A bit alcohol heat, I would have guessed more than the 14.3% alcohol

5/6/2015 - davekeefer Likes this wine: 92 points

Powerful red-fruit aroma, medium bodied, with moderate acidity and tannins, it has flavors of blackberry, red fruit, and some pepper, which was brought out in its excellent pairing with spicy lamb. Complex and flavorful but with only a medium finish.

At this stage, a little more mineral and spice driven and less dominated by fruit. But, still tasty to drink on a wed night, just not as impressive as my previous bottle. It is feeling a little bit more disjointed and clunkier than I remember, so I would recommend drinking this up. This bottle was screw top finished.

This wine has both strong aromas and intense flavors of sour cherry, strawberry, coffee and chocolate. Medium-full bodied with medium, round tannins , it is smooth and complex. Another excellent Villa Creek cabernet, though to my palate I prefer the 2010 vintage from this same vineyard. This wine is also an excellent pairing with New York steak.

This dark ruby colored wine has strong aromas of sour cherry and currant. Dry and medium full to full bodied, with high but soft tannins, it has predominant flavors of black cherry and vanilla oak with a long to very long finish. It's outstanding characteristic is is velvety smoothness. A truly excellent cabernet to my taste. It is was an excellent pairing with a Kobe beef New York steak and also with the Girl Scout thin mint cookies I had for dessert.

A good Paso SMG blend from @villacreekcellars to go with a cheese dinner. Dark berry on the nose, full bodied with the dark fruit following through on the palate. Still very young and primary but opened up after about an hour of decanting.

Wow, now we remembered why we bought this at the winery. Gorgeous nose. So very smooth, sexy mouth feel, rich dark fruit, green pepper, loamy, a bit of pencil lead and black pepper. Velvety finish with mild tannins. Very approachable now, but continue to please for several more years.

65% Syrah - 25% Mourvedre - 10% Grenache; 15.3% alcohol; finished with a screwcap closure.

Color: medium deep ruby/violet -> light ruby rim with a hint of bricking. Mature bouquet of blackberry and boysenberry compote, a little Chinese 5-spice powder and smoke. Palate definitely showing a mature wine -- this is a wine for drinking now and into the next few years. Smooth palate entry with blackberries, black cherries, a touch of forest floor and nice minerality. Still medium to full bodied with a lush mouthfeel and a long finish with excellent acidity, this wine is all about balance. Good stuff from Cris Cherry and aging well.

Villa Creek continues to create excellent GSM blends. Nose of dark berries mixed with strawberry (the Grenache?), and very floral. On the palate, the dark berry taste is dominant. Only thing holding it back from higher score is finish - it just sort drops off leaving you wondering .
