"The true revelation is the 2005 Crucible. This afternoon, we uncorked the nearly-full bottle you had poured from on
Friday, and actually I am totally stunned and nearly speechless in awe of this wine. It is certainly among the very best
California Cabernet Sauvignons I have ever tasted! It is a tremendous accomplishment--congratulations! The
closest comparison I can conjure is that it reminds me of a tasting of a flight of all of the 2005 first growth
Bordeaux that I participated in a few years ago. With those wines, you felt like getting down on one knee and bowing your head in
reverence and I'm getting the same sense with this one."
- Dr. Stephen Krebs, Napa Valley College Dean of Viticulture and Winery Technology

"The Faux Chablis wines are really hanging
in there in a most-interesting way and that is a great story in itself. We polished off the remainder of the 2002 on
Saturday. It was lemony and complex and refreshing, all at once."
- Dr. Stephen Krebs, Napa Valley College Dean of Viticulture and Winery Technology


WineSmith "Roman Reserve" 2004 Syrah (1.5 liter magnum)

SRP $300.00 - offered @ $199.00 Price is firm and includes shipping and insurance.

The Roman Reserve Syrahs are from Rennaissance Vineyard in the North Yuba in the Sierras. The wines contain no detectable sulfites and possess remarkable longevity.

3 magnums on offer (1 per customer).

Tech sheets, accolades and awards. (We recommend you open this a new window so you don't lose this page.)

"It's a really thought-provoking wine. There's some aromatic purity and elegance, with sweet dark fruits that have a brooding depth to them. The palate is very unusual and interesting. It's expressive and angular, with firm tannins and a meaty, spicy sort of rasp. These jostle with some funkier, herby, tobbacoey sort of elements. It finishes savoury and spicy. It's a wine that seems to show you one thing and then another. It's not a wine for everyone: some will find these bold, savoury flavours just a little too dangerous. But I like it a good deal. "

For those of you unfamiliar with my style and philosophy, you might enjoy the Special Wine Guest Forum discussion in 2014 on a wide variety of geeky and contraversial topics.

In particular, here's aninteresting exchange between Tom Hill and me.
