Ripe and peppery on the nose with cocoa tones and a woodsy underlay to the dark, jammy fruit. There are notes of tootsie roll, shoe polish , and raw wood adding some complexity. This has a bit too much acid sticking out giving the wine a sharp edge, and while the tannins are nicely judged the wine is out of kilter. The acids give the dried strawberry fruits an odd brightness. The finish is a bit sharp with a vitamin note of hard acidity. A nice boysenberry finale help to redeem the wine somewhat but it is accompanied by a bit of heat as well. 83pts

It's Sweet and modern smelling with lots of boysenberry fruit, and moderately intense mocha-like and vanilla oak spice but it also has a touch of game and dirt with hints of leather and tobacco lurking. Very smooth an entry with good acidity and nice balance to the medium full body, with tannins apparent but in check. The alcohol shows a touch on the finish but the wine is clean and fresh with a bit of dark earthy, bitter cocoa framing the blackberry fruit. Pretty fresh finish with redder fruit and a fleeting touch of spearmint then a finale of coffee, toast, light oak, and a hint of grilled meat. A well done California Syrah. Drink 2009-2014 88pts

so deep purple it looks australian. fullbodied, slightly bubbly from either my backwash or some in bottle secondary ferment. some nice big chunky tannins and medium acid. big american oak statement up front with some tart fruit rollup and black pepper hiding behind. big wine overall - no surprise this wine is successful at wine competitions (where subtle wines battle a judge's palate fatigue).

Lovely deep tar and earth aromas. Palate has a good range of fruit, has a bit of sweetness, well balanced acidity, earth, leather, tar and a smoky chocolate finish.

The nose is unhinged, some smoke and blueberries. Lots of oak influences, solid tannins, some tobacco on the finish, which is long. For a wine this big, it should be more fun.

Big dark blackberries and blueberries. Absolutely huge in the mouth with lots of blackberries, leather, and oak. Moderate acidity. Huge tannins. Nice wine.

From the Beverage Testing Institute World Wine Championships: 85 Points. Silver Medal. Bright violet color. Aromas of mulberries, India ink, and cracked white peppercorns follow through on a silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with baked apple, sautéed pepper, cedar, and spice notes. Finishes with a chewy, powdery tannin fade. (tasted on Jun-01-2009)
