92 points. The aroma is creamy and full of kitchen spices and buttery tones. A bit of burnt toast and lavender mingle with some very clear chocolate chip cookie dough and fruit and cheese Danish tones on the spin. Not exactly the aroma I was expecting from a wine with a name like “Six Gun,” but absolutely one that is easy to appreciate and enjoy. This wine is smooth and spicy at once, with black pepper and perfectly ripe blackberry and cherry tones. The mid palate is reminiscent of baked goods and the fruit approaches being jammy. There is a soft nore of suede, and saddle leather mixed with some smoky and a faint flintiness leading into the finish. This is a wonderfully complex wine, with elements of fruit and pastry coming together with leather and rural earthy tones. Beautifully orchestrated and very impressive, this is a wine worth buying.

92 points. This wine’s nose is a tangled web of herbs and bergamot mingling with black tea and black pepper. Volcanic stone, honey, and spiced custard combine with red berries at the aroma’s core, with saddle leather and hints of pasture gently showing with a spin in the glass. Dense and enticing, this wine greets the palate with green bell pepper notes and a dark streak of perfectly ripe blackcurrants and blackberries. Dried berries, leather and just a dusting of white pepper mingle with dark stone and smoke elements into the finish. This is an interesting blend that is actually quite large and mouth filling but restrained and refined at the same time. It’s full bodied but not at all jammy, and instead maintains an Old World, somewhat stoic quality.

86/100 points. Deep red ruby color fades to rose at the rim. A strong bouquet of cedar almost stings the nose. Starts with a heavy blackberry overtone which mellows into a floral taste. There is a strong aftertaste of smokiness. Poor balance of acidity leads to a quick finish and moderate mouthfeel. With the typical California style, this is a heavily oaked Syrah and many of the flavors are overwhelmed by its spicy effects. A long decant is needed to be enjoyed. As a good friend of mine would say, this is a "punch in the face" type of wine. However, this would be a good buy for less than $10.
There's no "reserve" on the label of my bottle but I'm assuming it's the same. I've had this in a restaurant before as well as received a bottle from my brother. It's pretty damn good, especially for the price point. About as fruit-forward as you can get, but has some dry tannins to check it down. Not smooth, but not a bad everyday wine.
This wine is really smooth and dry. I think its a great buy.
At an informal tasting, I thought this had the best bouquet!
