    ($42; 68% zinfandel, 20% syrah and 12% mourvedre) Deep ruby-red. High-toned, rather porty aromas of spicecake and chocolate. Concentrated and sweet, with port-like flavors of black fruits and spicecake. Has enough acidity for balance but this is distinctly high-toned. (A second bottle was a bit more oxidative.)

    Ripe yet well-structured, with jammy raspberry, fresh pepper and toasty oak aromas followed by potent wild berry, anise and sage notes that finish with a slight grip of tannins. Zinfandel, Syrah and Mourvedre.

    The 2004 The Outsider (380 cases) is a Syrah-dominated blend produced from north-facing slopes. It reveals surprisingly high acidity for a wine of such great fruit and richness. Beautiful black raspberry, black cherry, earth, licorice, pepper, and incense aromas are followed by an opulent, rich, fleshy, vibrant, well-delineated wine that should drink well for at least 7-8 years.

    Dark Purple in color. Truffle, cigar box and black berry on the nose. I did not like what all I can call is the zing or spritz in the mouth at all, I think it really distracted from the wine that had such an interesting nose. Perhaps decanting or more bottle time will take that away. Not good and certainly not worth the money.
