2008 Gundlach Bundschu - Cabernet Franc Rhinefarm Vineyards Estate
OMG... this wine rocks my world! The tannins are nice and smooth and just wonderful... great mouth feel on this wine. Definitely get the black cherry and tobacco flavors. This is a lovely semi-bold wine... it's the finish on this one that makes you adore it, though.

2007 Gundlach Bundschu - Syrah/Cabernet Sauvignon
From the producer: "Created expressly for the Gundlach Bundschu wine club, this first vintage of an exciting new blend offers the lush, fleshy fruit and smoky character of Syrah with the dense, dark flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon. Together, they are a symbiotic revelation. Like chocolate-covered cherries. Or bacon-wrapped figs. Or bacon-wrapped anything, really. Aromas and flavors are densely packed with wild berries, dark chocolate and wisps of hickory and black pepper, with a smooth, round texture and a long, chewy finish of rich fruit, cocoa and espresso. This elegant blend is intended for your enjoyment within 5-10 years from vintage." No wonder I didn't get the deeper cocoa and espresso flavors... I need to wait 5 years ;)

2007 Gundlach Bundschu - Syrah/Cabernet Sauvignon
Not quite as bold as I was expecting. Quite middle of the road in flavor, but it does get a little fruitier and earthier as it opens up. It is a very pleasant drinking wine, however... smooth and mild on the palate, more like a gentle Merlot or Pinot than the bolder flavors one would normally expect of the two main varietals in the blend.
