Tom Curling from VA

Wow!! I love blends and  this is one big mouthfull!! The Syrah gives it a full and the Zin a wonderful smoothness. I am reordering a case!   -20 Points

Mary Hull from KS

This has such a wonderful berry and floral taste, a little reminiscent of Pinot but much more flavorful and bold. I had this at a wine bar a few years ago and have been searching for it ever since. Thanks CWC for bringing it back to me.   -20 Points

Chris & Mary Ann Fatata from NY

European throwback! In the US acceptable winery isn't always revered but in Europe if you are fortunate enough to be offered someone table wine you are in for a wine tasting treasure. Blackbird takes you to Italy without ever leaving your home. Just ordered a case!    -20 Points
