Another terrific value under $20. I've loved almost every wine I've had from these guys and its a certain visit on my upcoming trip. Tasted her alongside a gourmet pizza that had lots of tomato sauce, portobello, goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, and harissa (a middle-eastern hot sauce). Okay back to the wine... powerful nose (not hot) with screaming dark fruits, jerky, mocha, and oak. tannins were chewy and definitely multi-layered. Smooth and lingering finish. Solid 90 points, under $20 by the bottle, $18 by the case or thereabouts.
