(2009 Vintage) Complex and textured well beyond what the modest price point would suggest, this is a full-on Shiraz, loaded with plum and black cherry fruit, and with enough tar, coffee and olive to retain your interest sip after sip. It's warm and velvety on the finish.

Slightly dry with warm flavors of berry and spices on the nose. A full body wine with an excellent pairing opportunity, mellow body, and a very smooth finish. Amazing.
give several hours to breathe and open up. very young wine. really get a lot of structure in a couple hours after opening and the fruit settles down.
almost sweet. lingering taste of berry. finishes quite clean, not like other shirazes that tend to be dry with too much tanin
Heavy blackberry jam flavor. Very full bodied and smooth.
quite good and smooth. the extra $7 or so dollars a bottle makes a difference.
dark, deep plum, black cherry, pepper(?!), long lingering harsh finish
very drinkable Shiraz, especially when skiing in Colorado.
Food fruity taste. Nice and even without any acidity.
I enjoyed this wine. will definitely have again.
good. about equal to razors edge but pricier
not bad but way better deals are out there
dark, spicy, long finish, big, enchiladas
BUY Lots of plum and currant, not too dry
Tomato pasta sauce, bitter chocolate, dry
not bad for the price, big & fruity!
big fruit balanced and powerful

Wine & Spirits(2008 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. The name gives it away. This is a rich, superripe wine that emphasizes its plush texture, layering fig, blueberry, sweet oak and black pepper in a finish that lasts. A primary, drink-it-right-now wine to open near steaks and charcoal.
