Arrived & opened,
All 3 are in the Crowd Pleaser category to me, the instigator which is 100% syrah is probably the one that will hold up the longest, its a little tighter with not much of a finish at this time, not as sweet as the other two,
For a an average price of $35.00 these will work great for an everyday wine especially for non wino parties.
i.e # Austin hope, Micheal David & Venge Scouts Honor.
I’ll take these over those, but don’t confuse these with Top, Fulldraw, Booker, Saxum, Law Estates. Different category of wine.

Very nice paired with fondue. — 7 days ago
We both really liked this. First sampled at a Howell Mtn tasting event a few years ago. Tonight, it’s even better than I remembered. Inky violet color and full bodied, but the tannins are rounded and the wine is thoroughly enjoyable even at this relatively young age. Dark and lovely, right to the last drop. I need to find more. — 3 days ago
Жёлтый грейпфрут, груша, твёрдый нектарин, полевые цветы, горькие травы, воск, сухой мёд, имбирь, солоноватое послевкусие на минеральной подложке. Среднее тело со сбалансированной, аккуратной кислотностью. Хорошие текстура и объём, не бездонная, но достаточная глубина. Интересно и гармонично. — a month ago
Haven't had Durif in the longest time. Not my favourite grape but the last one I had was quite memorable, admittedly. Blinded... Rowly's durif viognier (Scion wines) was a stroke of genius... elegant and perfumed. This, however, was what some would call classic... elegant wouldn't be first thing that comes to mind... but it's well-built. Huge fruit, heaps of spice, oak wasn't particularly intrusive but present, tannins was as expected... the concentration was really admirable. I reckon the vine age does show. Imagine if this fruit was treated like Rowly's... Damn! Then again, what fun would wine be if everyone made it in the way I like it 🤣
NB: Would have been nice to see it after a couple of days. Tbh, I'm not sure about the vine age but the Petite Sirah from Stags Leap supposedly comes from pretty old plantings. — 17 days ago
