Good grief! What a remarkable wine. Complex and balanced. Need I add: a remarkable value?

Really good wine. Not sure which word names the variety, but I would say it's like an intense Grenache. Beautifully made, with wonderful balance among the elements. Better after an hour.

I don't know if these varieties belong together. This wine was flavorful but lacking identity.

This is a really fine wine. Both the Syrah and Cabernet maintain their separate identities while complementing each other.

I thought this had rounded out beautifully since the last bottle. Turns out to have been a great Bordeaux acquisition.

One of the most complex wines I have had in recent memory. Layers of chocolate and leather. Wow!

Maybe the best California Pinot I've had. It had the secret Pinot ingredient: dirt!

Whew! Intense. Syrah dominant, I would say. Needs time.

This is a powerful wine in the fruit forward tradition. Very enjoyable, in that intense sort of way.

Good, but maybe a little brett, or something disturbing the purity.

I thought a little lacking in varietal character, and a bit on the thin side.

Very good. Lacking a little acidity, complexity.

Still kinda young. I don't see the complexity that would cause Tanzer to give this a 94.

94 from Tanzer, eh? Makes me think I am a philistine. I just thought it was a little of everything and not enough of anything. Very well made, though.
