The opaque purple-colored 2007 Blue-Eyed Boy Shiraz spent 12 months in 80% new American oak. It offers up an enticing nose of cedar, tobacco, mineral, blueberry, and black raspberry. Opulent on the palate, this glossy effort will evolve for another 1–2 years but can be enjoyed now and over the next decade.

This has a hot black pepper streak running through the meaty cherry, dense plum and spice flavors, persisting on the round, supple finish. Drink now through 2014.

Inky purple. Boysenberry and blueberry syrup aromas, with notes of chocolate syrup, and a whiff of heat gaining strength with air. Thick, creamy and extremely sweet; tastes like an artificial dark berry pancake syrup, with no noticeable tannins or acidity. The finish refuses to let go of the palate, suggesting that persistence isn’t always a good thing. I thing I’ve finally found the wine to serve with the Luther Burger.

If you like red wines that are big, bold and jammy, this wine is definitely for you! The color is dark and inky, with aromas of violets, berries and spice. This wine has matured nicely, making it velvety smooth with plenty of structure and balance. Layers of black raspberry, blueberries and anise emerge upon the palate. The long lasting finish makes your mouth water, and leaves you wanting more. Serve this wine with grilled flank steak with horseradish sauce.
