ajbergren 91

Dark inky purple. Aromatic nose of concentrated dark berries and currant with tabacco and fig. Palate is fruit forward with very firm tannins. Dry and very full bodied with black cherries, cranberry, and smoky but subtle oak, leaving a long and rich tobacco finish. Outstanding value wine!!

Nose of cherry and earth tones. Big bite of tart cherries or strawberries and a little white chocolate on the finish. Nice light red coloring.

Very nice cab. Full bodied, with dark berries and fig notes mixed with just the right amount of oak. This has a really long and deep finish.

This is a very simple Syrah, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of the most delicious. Not much else to say, it just tasted good. A terrific value!

Duffwine 84

VERY disappointing considering the 92 from Wine Advocate. just a hint corked, but seemed disjointed beyond, with no structure or sense of place with juicy, gob-like black fruit. Not recommended
