    Awesome wine, especially for the money. It is a Zin blend though, 46% zin, 26% cab, and the rest is Syrah, Grenache, Petite Syrah, and Charbono. Just a really weird blend that works, big wine, 15% alcohol.

    Rated 90 points by Wine Advocate, about right on.

    If you liked it, try a wine by the same company called "Papillon", great stuff!

    Oh ya, happy birthday.

    Damn, Sticky, you are really knowledegable about wines. My wife and I have done a lot of tasting in the Santa Ynez and Paso Robles areas with my parents, so I haven't branched out a whole lot from those regions. Great memories whenever I drink them Last night we finished off a bottle of 2004 Summerwood Diosa, blend of 84% Syrah, 12% Grenache, and 4% Mourvedre.

    I spend a lot of time reading about, drinking, researching, and collecting wine. The 2004 Diosa is pretty nice! 92 points from the Rhone Report and that is an interesting blend. I haven't tried it, but definitely will seek it out now.

    Yes, VERY good Shiraz for the money.

    When you get a chance, step up to the Carnival of Love, and when someone else is paying, The Velvet Glove (as good as Shiraz gets).

    Oh, and check out the Enchanted Path, 50% Shiraz 50% Cab and my favorite wine for the money. Seriously, Mollydooker is insanely good from top to bottom.

    I'm gonna sign up for their wine club right now. Didn't realize the ones you were recommending were also Mollydooker.

    Yep, all MollyDooker. I'm in love with their wine, huge, big, bold, all new world style. I haven't tried the Gigglepot Cab from them yet but I hear that is one to get your hands on...

    Yesterday had a couple nice wines:

    '08 Denner Grenache
    '08 Herman Story Casual Encounters
    '06 Stolpman Sangiovese

    Plus a few others I don't remember and were not worth mentioning.

    At the Mirage in Vegas:

    2006 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve Lot 1 - Pretty nice actually, good fruit, depth, and complexity. For $35 a glass it better be! Well balanced but needs time, I would say around 91-92 points.

    A few other wines as well, just can't remember their names.

    Just finished a 2001 Dominus with a rack of lamb from Craft at MGM. The Dominus was excellent but not as good as I remember, around 93-94 points but the first time I had it I felt it was 96+. It is aging extremely well, wine has another 10 years in it easy. Glad I have 4 bottles left Click here to enlarge

    Right now I'm having an '08 Benmarco Malbec. Drinks like an 87-88 point wine.

    If you ever want a wine that is a good value, this is a good choice. For around $15 bucks or so at Costco it definitely is not bad. For something to sip on without breaking your bank account, go for it.

    Tomorrow though I'll be having the really, REALLY, good stuff Click here to enlarge
