Pop and pour. Black currant jam. Finish isn't very long. Not complex, but enjoyable. Nice first big red of the season.

9/11 10th anniversary wine. Surprisingly full bodied, but a bit of heat. Will let it open it up for a while longer before giving a score.

Fruit seemed a bit muted, but it might have been overpowered by the steak I had with it.

Needs more time sideways, but will be fantastic in a year or so.

Chocolate, blackberries, toffee... bit of a tiramisu loveliness thing going on. Still loving this wine.

Evolved to a lovely strawberry-rhubarb as it warmed up. Looking forward to the 2009 Rose from CN.

Drinking perfectly right now. Smooth, luscious black fruit, nice finish.

Wow! This was silky, with lots of red fruit and a lingering finish. Totally out-shon the 2003 Rutherford Merlot we also drank.

Fruit seems to have made a resurgence. Otherwise, all the same notes apply from January. A very elegant wine. I'm saving the last bottle for a few more years just to see how it fully ages.

Decanted overnight and still never got fruit. Barnyard smell was completely overwhelming and not in a good way.

Not the beauty I recall from Christmas 2007 but still a winner. Fruit is a bit diminished but there is a bit of a fennel and white pepper flavor I don't recall from before. At the end, a bit of creme brulee/burnt sugar/toffee loveliness. A fine wine, and I'm glad I have 2 more bottles to see how this continues to age.

Lovely honey flavor to this, but a bit too sweet for me today. Would like to see bit more crispness to this instead of canned pears.

Still young, but shows promise. Should wait at least another year on this.

Probably would have rated this 91 or 92 ifnot for the heat on the back end. Lots of earthy tones, maybe beets? red fruit, dirt, but not mud...was lovely and I toast Lance Baer for a well-made wine.

I don't know if it was because it was the holidays or what, but this was nearly perfect. Smooth, lush, black fruit. The more I thought it about, the more mythic it became... I wonder if I had the best bottle of the lot?

This is what Syrah was all about when I fell in love with it ten years ago...the aromatics on this are just beautiful...musky and heady and sexy and big like a Syrah should be. I think I'm back in love with Syrah after this.

I don't know what was wrong with this but it first tasting like kindling wood and then it moved to charcoal. Just awful.

Wow...massive fruit bomb...I was sure this was predominately Merlot but was surprised to see it was mostly Cab Sauv...was smooth and chocolatey and fruity. Paired lovely with some nice Pecorino and balsamic. $20 might be pushing it for this ... but it was a damn nice bottle and I'm glad I've got another.

Definitely gets better with air time. Started out a bit acidic and hot, but mellowed into a nice chocolatey-cherry blend. Looking forward to tasting this tomorrow night. Never forget...9/11/01.

Just beautiful. Dark plums, a bit of coffee. Sorry to see this bottle go.

Wow, this just keeps getting better. Profile still the same , but cherries have gone to end of summer ripe and the grass aspect has gone...nothing green about this wine anymore, but instead there is a smoothness not there last year, even with no decanting. Very elegant.

Nowhere near as good as I remember when tasting at the tasting room. This is an acid bomb. My stomach is so unhappy! Maybe it will be better tomorrow night.

Skye's impression is green apples so pert you could stuff your bra with them. She also tasted a bit o honey and some vanilla. I tasted some green grass and honey and pear. We came to a consensus of 89.

Meh. Good for a no-brainer, but not worth what I paid.

In my opinion, a great QPR. Tastes like a bottle that costs twice as much. I'll give it an 88 - it's got a good beat and you can dance to it. Soft, with black fruits and a hint of licorice.

This is my favorite every day wine. Nose is fruity and chocolatey. Reminds me of my favorite birthday cakes growing up, chocolate with raspberry filling. First drink - the merlot counteracts the dryness you'd normally get from a straight cab. Still very chocolatey. A little spicey after swishing and aerating. Very, very mellow. Second drink - same as the first. I'm guessing some people would say this is not very complex, but for an every day wine, I don't really care so much about that. I want something that says, hey, you're home, sit down and take a load off...and maybe don't get up again until you've finished the second glass. This wine is all about being at home and chillin'.

Was so disappointed. Took this to a blind tasting and it was so off! VA = latex paint taste that never blew off. :(

Went perfectly with a New York steak topped with mushroom sauce. A little earthy, lovely with the mushrooms.

Smell was pretty much like vinegar. Ran it through the aerator and that helped a lot. An ok every day drinker, but for $12.99, I've definitely had better wines.

This needs considerable breathing time. On the nose, beets and pepper steak. Tastes of blackberry, chocolate, coffee, not quite ripe cherries. At the very end of it...a taste of new green grass. With more time open, segued into strawberry shortcake.
