2013 Proulx Petite Sirah Central Coast

image Blackberries, black pepper, dusty cocoa and espresso on the expressive nose. Scents strike the palate with a wave of black fruits, tobacco leaf, caramel and espresso. Cleans up nice and dry with crisp minerals, black earth and black fruits carrying on the long, mouth watering finish. Absolutely delicious, lithe red jam packed with flavor. Perfect for your summer grill served with a little chill. A lot of wine for $15. Cheers

2013 Mark Ryan Board Track Racer The Shift

I love it when the first smell of a wine gives me goosebumps. I think it speaks to the wines balance, and I know it’s going to be good.  Seamless scents of black fruits, rainwater, minerals, cocoa, smoke and an underlying glycerin; gorgeous. Black and blueberries rush the palate but are checked by crisp minerals and a taught acidity. Toasty espresso and dark chocolate flavors carry into the extravagant, dry finish with orange zest and tea laced minerals lingering.  Fuck, I love Syrah. Cabernet is easy to love; Syrah seduces you. This has 5% Grenache in the blend. Enjoy. And thank you Mike MacMorran for making this beauty. $34.99
