Sour plum, soil and spice tones greet the nose with a menthol top note and some nicely nuanced, stemmy tobacco and lightly toasted coffee bean accents. In the mouth this is bright and juicy with a really dark medicinal tone running right through the mid-palate. there's some more coffee/mocha notes up front which are followed by mineral laden wild cherry and candied red plum fruit tones. Some tanjnin pops out on the back end a maybe a touch of unintegrated wood as well. Tense, dry and uncompromising, this is not a fruity wine, but rather it's muscular, complex, lightly gamey and decidedly savory in a mineral rich style. This would be great with game meat but isn't too big for game birds either. Whatever it is make it rare. I could drink this all night. 92pts

Blended from two excellent vineyards (Lone Redwood Ranch in the Russian River AVA and Rockin' R Ranch in Mendocino), this delicious wine is tighter and more Rhone-structured than the fruitbomb '05 Field Blend Block that was made entirely from the Lone Redwood Ranch and was not so Syrah-dominated. The 2006 Field Blend has a lovely nose redolent of sweet blueberry, blackberry, and bing cherry fruit along with creamy background aromas and an attractive dose of sweet spices. In the mouth, the '06 is less potent than the '05 (which had 2% higher alcohol content), and also feels more structured and higher in acidity - though by no means objectionably so. Built with the leaner texture of a good Rhone, but with the delectable fruit density of a ripe California Syrah.
