  • william perry Does not like this wine:

    September 15, 2015 - Very sorry I bought several bottles
    I tried one a few months ago and none of us were wiling to try a second glass
    gave it a second chance this past weekend - a warm day perfect for a Rose
    the wine is a bit sour and it was left almost full on the table

    January 5, 2014 - Shocked when this came out of the bottle as a rose'. I thought I bought an entry level Syrah. It's an ok quaffer, but it should have Rose' on the label.

    February 17, 2013 - Ever so slightly pink in color. Meaty syrah nose. The wine has basically two flavor profiles. Initially, the wine displays good acid with mild dark fruit character. Then There is a quite momemt followed by a building dark fruit presence that overwhelms any earlier fruit impressions. A very interesting wine that at this price is fun for the casual drink.

    February 9, 2013 - This was very strange. We loved the 2009 and went back to get two more bottles. Brought this to a Thai restaurant with friends and hated it. Very sour and flabby. What a disappointment. Hope our last bottle is better
