Corvidae Rook 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

With a robust nose of rich black cherry, mocha, and a whiff of Syrah smoke, this is definitely not a shy wine. Lots of ripe fruit flavors are here, with cassis and plums dominating. It's all kept in balance by ample acidity and chewy tannins. Pair this big red with almost anything off the grill, salmon or steak, chops or chicken, you get the idea.

Smooth with wine. Great blend that is smooth with a good finish. Easy to drink alone or with food. Went just fine with a good juicy burger.

Upon opening, this wine gave off a thin, dry sharpness with plenty of white pepper, grassiness, soil and crisp potent acidity, which kind of intrigued me in a good way. As we let the wine breath, it began to relax and open up, unfurling soft and supple licorice, boysenberry, and vanilla flavors. The sharpness of the acidity eventually faded to the back and the plum and jam flavors began coming forward in a very round mouth-filling way. The back label of the wine bottle bears a partial phrase: "Lucky at cards . . ." They didn't have to finish it, as I am certain this wine will find many lovers.
