    February 22, 2011 - I have to disagree with the other reviewers. While this is not a sophisticated wine, it has generous fruit for the price and impresses people when poured blind.

    January 27, 2011 - (14.5%) Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon – Dark, almost opaque in the glass. Once you get near this one it is cloying from the get go. Big, flabby and sweet on the palate if you view the glass half empty. For the half full crew this comes across as a big, relatively smooth fruit bomb with puckering black cherry flavors that shows dry pepper notes on the back end. Either way there is lingering heat on the finish. How do you view the glass? I’m half empty on this one but feel free to give it a shot if it sounds like it may be up your alley…

    October 29, 2010 - Tasted in Riedel rhone glass. Aromas of blueberries, blackberries, and autumn leaves. Dark ruby in color. Flavors of dark chocolate, boysenberry, toasted marshmallows, and oak with faint hint of eucalyptus in the finish. Nice blend, good balance, brings out the best characteristics of cab sauv and syrah.

    January 1, 2010 - nose was somewhat medicinal, with soft ripe fruits. Palate was soft, fruity, medicinal, and very elusive. Possibly the shortest finish ever.
    I did not find it offensive for the price bracket - a white-elephant gift, this wine surpassed expectation. Lasted 3 nights in the fridge (recorked) just fine. The overly-pruney taste to it made it too hard to drink more than one glass, however.
