Raven Series No. 1 Grenache 2006

Gor
9.4

Intense ruby color. Stewed fruit, violets, hints of leather, licorice, sweet tobacco, creme brulee on the nose. Real depth and complexity on the palate - chewing gum, licorice, plums, black cherries. Lifted acidity still provides a youthful backbone along with prominent tannin. Killer wine though lacks a tad bit of freshness. — 14 days ago

Stein California Grenache

Dense boysenberry in color: nose of blackcurrant, spice and a little licorice; lovely texture of fully ripe fruit that’s bright with just enough supporting tannin. SQN always so solid. — 2 months ago

Sine Qua Non

Le Supplément Syrah 2013

On my list of favorite Syrahs! A beautiful dark magenta color. Blackberry tart cherry, floral aromas jump from the glass with secondary notes of pencil lead and sandalwood and hints of bacon fat and milk chocolate floating. Taste - a smooth creamy and richly structured wine. Blueberry and cherry fruits still dominate with pepper, crushed rock and tar following. The finish is long with lingering notes of bitter chocolate and espresso and a touch of heat on the end but overall flavors are well integrated. Should open up even more throughput the evening. Luv the label. — 2 months ago
