Zin-Syrah, this is a new blend to me! Anyone ever had one?

Haven't cracked their pinot yet, but looking forward to it

(Oops... When you click on the photo the Cinque Syrah photo pops up...)

Interesting blend. Only bottled twice in the last ten years. Fruity/Spicy explosion?

CT notes are very thin, but reference the wine still being hot. Drink now vs. cellar?

Nope. I have a Justin Savant Cab/Syrah blend and the Gazzi Estate Pinot Noir has about 15% Syrah but this is a new one to me too.

Review of their 2007 Syrah from Guyzer Block
Rating: 91 | Price: $38
This is a big, strong, gusty Syrah, a powerhouse of jammy blackberries, currants, bacon, pepper, and sandalwood. Its completely dry, with rich, thick tannins and a long, spicy finish. Good now, with proper fare, and should glide-path through the next 6 years. -WE

Sorry I couldn't find a review of the Rouge.

As I learned here a while ago, Zins routinely have a bit of Petite Sirah blended in for color and heft, so I imagine it's somewhat along the same lines.

Seems like Zin dominant blends are gaining some popularity. Orin Swift's The Prisoner is 44% Zin, 26% Cab, and 18% Syrah (with a few other tiny bits). Without more Zin and no Cab, I'd guess this one is more of a beast.

No info on their website other than a footnote that says this is only avaialable as part of a package as its a special wine.

On a side note, while I like the photos on ww, seems like a potential waste of wine for the sake of artistry, hopefully someone fished out that cork and enjoyed what is purported to be a special wine...

I like how they balanced the bottle on the wine glass in the photo. That's first for Wine Woot.

I wonder if the photographer has tried an even wackier way of arranging the wine bottles and glasses?

When I click on the picture itself I see a Syrah with a white label. Am I just confused or is the wine label on the balanced bottle not the actual label?

CT user average value = $27.74, almost all purchases made from the winery so I'm not sure how much of a deal this is although I am intrigued by the blend.

Anyone here ever blend their own wines together? I've thought of trying it several times but have never done so. I have plenty of Zin and enough Syrah to try making my own "Rouge", though - this is basically 2 parts Zin to 1 part Syrah.

Quick math on that same section of the website means that they value this at about $45 / bottle

According to CT, this has been bottled in 1999, 2002, 2004, 2007 and 2009 which seems to contradict the "twice in 10 years" statement although nobody has any bottles of the 2002 so that might be a mistaken entry and I'll assume that the 2009 had not yet been released when this product description was written and that 2007 was to be the 3rd installment in that 10 year span.

Sooo, using the PolitiFact meter, the statement appears to be "mostly true".

I love Davis wine, I ordered the case from the winery when I joined their club, after tasting the Soul Patch Pinot I got from woot. I received 4 bottles of this wine, I have had 1. Zin is not a favorite of mine typically, I rarely give them over an 86 even blends.
Further disclaimer, I don't write about wine well, I just don't taste the complex things all the professionals do. Here is what I wrote about this one on my private CT notes:

"Fourth bottle of Davis wine now, joined the club, they substituted 2 extra bottle of this wine for something they ran out of. I like it, not as good as the Pinot's I have had, but still good. To me, well made. Character of Zin with the earthy fruit of Syrah. Nice deep purple color. Nose has the balanced oak note of the Pinot's I love, with muted dark fruits, and a good earthiness. Good balanced mouth feel, smooth, luxurious, with a zin spicey kick. Medium to long finish. Little hot and dry on the finish for it to be a fantastic wine to me. Crystals on the cork, no worries, doesn't taste corked. Getting better as the night goes on. Probably better integrated on day 2, just a big peppery blend, would be fantastic with a steak. Old vine Zin certainly adds the concentrated pepper dark fruits you would expect.

Overall Score night one = 89 keep at 89 after night 2, knocking on a 90"

Notes over the two evenings I drank it. Also said it went well with Kalamata Olives and was too spicey for aged cheddar cheese.

Hope that helps.

I very much have enjoyed Orin Swift's Prisoner over the years. I'd definitely be in for a few of these, except that I am under a strict LIWBM (Lent Imposed Wine Buying Moratorium).

Argh . . .

Frankly, thats a great review for me. I don't have the palate that some do but I love Zin's. It's just outside of my price right now.

Meh. I've found there Pinot & Barn d'Or to not be great values. Pass.

A first for me! Hope it's worthy. We were out to dinner with friends and I was trying to "teach" them about woot. Saw Davis and just bought... Woot-offs are killing the credit card!

I received my order last week and finally got around to popping one open Sunday.

GREAT.

Hope to see it on a WootOff!
