Go and look for this if you can find it!!

This is also the first bottle of wine I've every seen two corks in...mistake of course but the wine was left completely reductive and it took some major swirling to get rid of it.

This wine is dense, like when you throw everything but the kitchen sink at it. Opaque, densely colored, in a rather rustic way, I think it is an organic wine. High toned acidity, berries, floral, not particularly focused, as I said, rustic, more honesty wine making style....chewy.... Love it!! Its got character.. Its about $25 a bottle so good deal too.

Had my second bottle of this and it is still fantastic. The previous bottle had been opened up for a while, this one on opening was also a bit reductive but the nose is full of chocolate and licorice and with my notes match my previous. I forgot to mention that this is a 100% organic wine and that it is also made completely with Syrah. Lovely stuff!
