Community Tasting Note

    September 11, 2008 - Tried alone and with spicy beef chili. On the nose it's dark berry, maybe even black cherry, followed by a bit of spice and maybe vanilla? Taste is surprisingly restrained - not as smoky or heavy currants/plum that often dominate the Rosenblum syrahs. Finish is a little alcoholic and shorter than I would typically expect. Certainly this is not as chewy or robust as a Pickett or Fran's, but it's a decent value for the price ($20). For me this is too early to fairly rate. UPDATE:
    I am loving this on the second night (half bottle corked kept @57F for about 24h). Tried alone, and now enjoying with Petite Filet, rosemary potatoes, and local green beans with oregano and chili flakes. For various reasons this combo seems to agree well with this wine. The overnight has allowed mellowing on both the noise (similar to before, but has more chocolate and vanilla at the end). Taste is still a little hot, but shows a nice future for this one. Plum is more present and and slightly less alcoholic. I will probably buy at this price.
