Added Dec 10, 2007 at 1:01amOne of my favorite California wineries. This Syrah, besides its dark berries and cocoa, has a very distinct band-aid, plastic nose. Good food wine. The Craigs are very nice people too, so go visit them at Shoestring in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Added Feb 14, 2009 at 7:31pmI adore this wine. Its true what others say about its low acidity. Fruit tree blossom on the nose. On the palate, dried tropical fruit (mostly mango) with some apple and golden raisins. Very long sticky finish with just a hint of butter. Expect to pay at least $20 U.S. for a 187 ml bottle but what the hey, they don't get much juice out of those frozen grapes

Added Jan 11, 2008 at 12:40amTypical "Italian style" Sangiovese. Smoked lunch meat on the nose. Its difficlt to pick up the cherry through the oak and suede but its there. Faint cherry and bitter dark chocolate finish.

Added Jan 5, 2008 at 9:20pmVanilla wafers, citrus blossom on the nose. I even get a hint of banana. I don't know if its peel or leaves but its definitely banana. Lemon candy or cough drop on the palate. When i drink this wine i thing of chicken piccata or chicken ravioli with béchamel sauce.

Added Jan 4, 2008 at 1:32amObvious Asian pear, candied pineapple and lemon oil on the nose. Very thick for a white wine. I almost want to say viscus. Well balanced finish of more Asian pear followed by citrus rind.

Added Dec 5, 2007 at 1:28amDark fruit with a "fortified" wine character. The wine is not fortified but at 16.1% alcohol it may fool you. Definitely a food wine. Well made wine. Even with the high alcohol, no burn on the wood box finish.

Added Jan 1, 2008 at 12:03amBig black cherry Jello on the nose. I mean when its warm, before you put in the fridge to set. Not a long finish but very well rounded with a little burnt marshmallow and cedar at the end.

Added Dec 20, 2007 at 1:42amI get oak, asparagus, licorice and some herb (I think its oregano or maybe grass) on the nose. A pretty decent finish with more licorice. A solid balanced wine. Thank you Roger.

Added Nov 17, 2007 at 1:48amTypical inexpensive blush. A lot like most of the white zins you've tried. Heavy on the Jolly Rancher nose with a cheap rose petal perfume finish. I like it!
