I've always enjoyed this wine for the sheer flavour-for-money quotient, and the 2007 continues the success story....

Smooth red, with gently present oak delivers great varietal character at a bargain price. Both savoury and fruity, it...

This is an excellent wine. Full of berry flavour. If you decant for 1 hour, you will be rewarded. Great wine, for a low price.

This well-priced, fleshy and full-bodied Syrah will have you singing its praises! Look for aromas and flavours of blackberry, cracked pepper, road tar, sour cherry and a hint of oak, leading to a spicy, medium-long finish. An unbeatable value, this crowd-pleasing red is a natural partner for pepper steak or barbecued ribs. 88

This is good stuff. I really enjoyed this wine.

Syrah from the good old USA. Yes, California like to oak and this one has lots of it. I think that is why I like this wine so much.

A nose that I could sniff on all day. Plums, cherry, and good old American Oak.

Taste delivers! Complex and balanced. Blackberries, cherries, a hint of tobacco. plums, oak (lots of it) and the flowery violets found in good syrahs from France.

This medium to full bodied wine contains aromas of prune, cedar, black currant, and leather. It is smooth, sweet and lacks tannins. It is good now to 2012, but there is no point to age it. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, I wouldn’t buy it again. Tasted Mar/10.
