This is what I'm talking about. $8? Are you kidding me? This kills most $50 California cabs. Big fruit bomb with notes of spicy cinnamon and just gobs of fruit. Like a blackberry pie. Possibly the best QPR I have ever experienced. The label is so unassuming that it can get easily overlooked in a Trader Joe's or another large retailer. This is a steal. Get your hands on as many bottles as you can and drink throughout winter. Gift em, drink em. whatever. Surely the '09 will cost double.

Ripe and juicy, with pretty spicecake, coffee and cocoa notes, and a healthy dose of blackberry fruit. Sweet, smoky finish. Very tasty. Drink now through 2004.

Inky and dense with attractive berry aromas and a touch of cinnamon and sweet spice. A fully, fruity wine, with excellent body, intense tannins, flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and plum intermingled with hints of cardamom and pepper, and a long, full finish. - Winery

Very floral and pure, with red plum, cherry, licorice and mocha notes followed by tangy minerality. Drink now.

Heavily extracted, with roasted aromas of charred wood, beef and coconut. The mouth pushes bold cherry, blackberry and plum flavors, while the finish is slick yet tangy. This wine shows bulk around the edges but its leaner and more acidic in its center. Solid for everyday action, assuming you like yours big.
