It's cheap, it's good. For drinking as a table wine with red meat from the grill, it's hard to beat. Not for special occasions, but a solid performer.

Nice long red cherry nose. Smooth and round on the palate. It went well with our main course of mediterranean chicken. Good price point for this well balanced full red.

3…2…1…Happy New Year! That was the first thought that come into mind upon smelling the aroma of this wine. It had the smell of freshly popped fireworks. It was smoky and woody, and I not sure if the name was meant to be an indicator of such an aroma. The taste seemed to lack in the flavor department, and I spent the majority of my time with this wine taking in the fireworks. I would buy it again on smell alone.

Not a bad wine for the price. Good to give to friends or drink to get drunk.

The flavors burst through with intense blueberry and strawberry jam notes wrapped around rich French oak and finishing with touches of milk chocolate, sweetened cranberries, and savory herbs.

So ripe and juicy in jammy cherry, currant and mocha flavors, you just have to take another sip. This winning Syrah is dry and balanced despite the abundance of fruit, with a lush, smooth texture.

Sleek and earthy, with mineral, dried berry, sage and underbrush notes that are complex and appealing. Drink now.

Ripe and easy to like, with pomegranate, beef and spice flavors accented by refreshing structure and a deft hint of toasty oak. Drink now through 2006.

Medium violet red color, with very plump plum and mission fig notes up front. Rich and supple on the palate, with dark chocolate, mocha and spicy white and black pepper, and a touch of French oak in the finish.

Mocha and vanilla from toasty oak frame blackberry, fresh herb and cherry flavors. Earthy tannins linger. Drink now through 2007.

If you like Australian Shiraz, then you should try Syrah (same grape), especially this California delight. Hints of sun-warmed berries accented with a dash of spice produces a delightful wine to enjoy on a snowy evening with a bowl of chili.
