Tasting Notes:
rated: June 30, 2008 , Robert Parker
92 points "Lastly, the 2006 Ripper (90% Grenache and 10% Syrah) is a sexy Paso Robles Chateauneuf du Pape look-alike. Licorice, roasted Provencal herbs, kirsch liqueur, and creme de cassis characteristics emerge from this broad, concentrated, intensely flavored effort. Full body along with stunning opulence, purity, and length suggest this beauty will drink well for 6-8 years. Sadly, fewer than 150 cases were produced." Best 2008-2016

91 points "Complex and balanced, with a tasty display of ripe berry and dried currant, mineral, fresh earth, cedar and pomegranate flavors, firming up midpalate and ending with firm tannins. Drink now through 2014. 136 cases made. –JL" Best 2009-2014
