Smooth wine to drink on own, or with a hearty pasta dish. Easy Cabernet Sauvignon to drink.

as good as any Syrah to pass my lips, considering the price.

An unusual cab with wild, unbalanced aromas and flavors. Crushed field weeds and thistles open an earthy, pungent nose that also houses subtle notes of dark fruit, including cassis and plum. Palate launches with a complex array of black fruits, including currant, plum and stewed prunes, framed by a sour, tangy acidity infused with notes of thistle, wild weeds, and burnt oak.

Had two bottles of this and was on a roll. Very good wine. Heavy dark fruits that sat on your palate nicely. Was big in the mouth but was not overbearing. Was a bit more tannic compared with its acidity. I will agree however with the previous reveiw that it matches any $30.00 cab out there.

Never had this varietal before. Interesting nose of green pepper, mushroom, with a little fruit showing through. Once it had been open for awhile, the vegetal flavors faded and more berry fruits were apparent. Nice drinking wine, and at $9, great QPR! Excellent - 86 points.

Focused, with good dark coffee, black cherry and dark licorice notes followed by a loamy hint. The finish is dark, juicy and driven. Drink now through 2009.

Auge: leuchtendes Dunkelrot; Nase: Aromen nach reifen Kirschen, Johannisbeere, Pflaume, Note nach Vanille und Röstaromen nach amerikanischer Eiche; Gaumen: im Mund konzentriert, lebendig und weit. Elegant und lang anhaltend

Inky ruby. A complex bouquet displays red- and blackcurrant, dark cherry, tobacco and incense. Fleshy, finely etched red and dark berry flavors stain the palate and are firmed by juicy acidity. Becomes sweeter with air, finishing with excellent clarity and lingering sweetness. This will reward patience.

Thick, minty and extracted, with charcoal darkness. A forward wine that steps on the gas pedal with cola, black cherry and licorice flavors. More dark flavors and licorice notes settle on the finish, which has good feel but not much variety. In fact, thatrsquo;s the only complaint with this Syrah: it lacks complexity.


External Review

Glass-staining ruby. Powerful aromas of red and dark berries, incense and fresh rose. Fleshy, gently sweet black raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors stain the palate and become firmer with air, gaining a zesty anise quality. Finishes with a strong echo of dark berries and persistent spiciness. I'd resist the temptation to open this for another few years.

This wine has an attractive red color with violet reflections, and a pleasant blend of fruit and spice aromas. Full in the mouth, with sweet tannins and a persistent finish. A delightful accompaniment to red meats and spicy dishes.

Perfectly open and huge, with deep plum and black fruit smothering both the bouquet and palate. Over the past couple of years this wine has distinguished itself as a bruiser with charm. And while it may show very little in common with Rhocirc;ne-style Syrah, for a Chilean version it rocks. Look for huge berry flavors and excellent balancing acids and tannins.
