  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Sawyer Cellars Merlot Rutherford 2004


    Enjoyed last night with a great beef tenderloin steak. Bought the wine while visiting our son in Colorado Springs this summer, using Snooth recommendation. Paid $38.00, which I thought was a lot for a Merlot, but it was truly worth the price. Perfectly balanced, deep rich color and a velvet finish. Would recommend this wine for special eveni...
