All of these Porcupine Ridge Wines are excellent values. The medium to dark ruby-colored 2000 Syrah has a sexy, sweaty, black raspberry and blackberry-scented nose. This Northern Rhône-like Syrah is filled with sweet black raspberries, currants, and hints of leather. It could easily pass for a top-flight St. Joseph. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.

A second-label offering from the famed Boekenhoutskloof estate, Porcupine Ridge over-delivers with intense black fruit flavors, hints of earth, and luscious coffee and chocolate notes. It strikes a stylistic balance between Old World and New.

This Syrah has a rustic but elegant nature: aromas of raspberry, black pepper, smoked sausage and cloves prevail, while full-bodied but integrated flavors of anise, pepper and berry follow. The wine is robust but has a velvety character and a spicy finish.

Fresh, with an iron note running through the black tea, braised fig and dark cherry fruit notes. There's a nice plush edge to the open-knit finish. Drink now.
