on the fence here, Cab? OK, Merlot? OK, Syrah???
Not sure about the style of this one, but some Syrahs are huge and delicious. Others are a bit lighter, a la merlot vs cab. I say jump.
Same here. Anyone try this previously? (I heavily rely on wine.woot opinions and have not been let down yet)
I had the '04(?) Merlot, Cab, and Syrah from Dusted Valley when they were offered on Woot years ago. Wish I had some notes, but I do remember really liking all three of them and am jumping on this offer, too. I seem to recall that the Syrah was our favorite.
Found an interesting article on the winery. http://blog.seattlepi.com/northwestwine/2010/06/03/walla-wallas-dusted-valley-vintners-leaving-others-in-dust/
Boomtown in the value label and according to this article the Merlot sells for $15, so I’m not sure about the MSRP stated here. http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20120620/BLOG5203/706209993
Still, it’s a deal and I’m in for one.
+1 on this comment… they were 04’s 06’s back then but I did enjoy them…
taking a chance…
Do some exploring in west Paso Robles for some world class Syrah. A very good starter would be Stillman’s Colossus. After that, move to Booker, Alban, Herman Story, Epoch, Denner… on and on. Syrah can be very, very good. I prefer the meaty, plum Syrahs. Normally what differentiates a good Syrah from a great one (for me) is the complexity and structure. A lot of Syrah can have great taste but be very monotonous.
That being said, great Paso Robles Syrah is starting to get nearly as expensive as decent Napa cabs.
Sounds good; in for two. Edit: No shipping to Connecticut…in for none.
