I decided to try this wine after being pleasantly surprised by the Goats do Roam flagship wine. Deep red color in the glass. This wine showed dark fruit on the nose along with aromas of earth, cedar, and tobacco. Robust mouthfeel bursting with blackberry and black currant flavors. White pepper accompanies the fruit on the palate and has a nice warming sensation. Traces of oak as well. Great balance in this wine with nice acidity and firm tannins giving the wine a great feel. Very generous finish goes on for quite a while. Good value for the money, I would definitely recommend this wine for fans of spicy syrah.

I wanted to try this South African wine to get a feel for a Northern Rhone Côte Rôtie wine without breaking the bank. I was quite pleased with this one. I noted red and black berries on the nose. This wine had a rich mouth feel and is medium to heavy bodied. Hints of the berries on tasting were quickly replaced by strong additions of spice, chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Finish was strong with spice but dissipated a little to quickly. Very nice wine that one day I can hopefully compare to a real Côte Rôtie.

There go owner Gene Kirkham and winemaker Allen Price again, having fun with us. This duo has been cutting up since the 1980s over there on the Silverado Trail near St. Helena, especially with their Two Goats Red, whose blend differs with each vintage. The small, rustic winery says of this wine, that it is “dedicated to the Weed Abatement staff.” You might have guessed that the so-called staff is a pair of Nubian goats named Nava and Cross, who clean up the property while filling their considerable bellies.What we have then, is a fun wine that has substance and gives a whole lot of pleasure without emptying your wallet. The aromas are reminiscent of a berry patch – blackberry, blueberry and wild cherry – with some hints of cinnamon and a tinge of bittersweet chocolate. The wine is very well balanced with tar in the front and minerality on the finish. In the middle is a soft wine with supple tannins, which will help the wine age for a half-dozen years.The blend spent 19 months in second- and third-year French barrels. The listed alcohol is 13.9 percent, and alas, there were just under 300 cases produced. You go goats! – <i>baah, baah.</i>
