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.

    Dark and plush, with espresso, fig paste and plum sauce notes pushed by mocha and dark licorice on the finish. The rich, smoky finish shows fine-grained tannins and the density for moderate cellaring. Drink now through 2009.

    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.

    The purple-colored 2007 Syrah Marques de Casa Concha delivers notes of cedar, tobacco, espresso, smoke, and blueberry. Firm and structured on the palate, pepper and mineral elements make an appearance along with a hint of black licorice. This solid effort will drink well from 2011 to 2019.

    Lovely blackberry, boysenberry and blueberry fruit, with ample toast, cocoa and mineral notes. Slightly firm, but has plenty of stuffing to handle it. Rich finish. This winery just keeps cranking out the hits. Drink now through 2006.

    A lush, ripe and potently structured syrah, this Marqueacute;s offers a seductive combination of tart red and black fruit. The flavors are backed by firm acidity, suggesting it will evolve well over the next several years. Or decant it now for grilled sausages.

    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.
