Huge, even flamboyant, on the palate, with juicy black fruits, blackberry and elderberry, smoke, the darkest chocolate, and vanilla, all kept just barely in control by firm, structured tannins. Drink with marvelous wine with equally marvelous local lamb. Highly Recommended. 94 points.
Huge black fruits, dark chocolate, freshly-turned earth, seared beef fat, and eucalyptus make two big fists and punch their way out of the bottle and into your heart. It will pair beautifully with a well-marbled ribeye, but it's just as good all by itself. Highly Recommended.
This is a big mouthful of wine that calls for a big mouthful of steak to go with it. Pair it with anything you want, as long as it starts with "cowboy" and ends with "ribeye." Highly Recommended. 90 points.
This is a bit more ripe and a bit less complex than expected. Drink with dry-rub pork ribs. Recommended. 88 points.
This is a very well made wine but very young. Give it five years in the cellar and pair it with a butter basted bone-in strip. Highly Recommended. 93 points.
Petite Sirah gives an anchor to Zinfandel and Carignane lifts it, altogether giving an incredibly broad spectrum of black fruits, from deep and earthy to bright, zingy, and fresh...
This is a powerful brute of a wine dressed in lace and finery. Drink with braised short ribs. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH
