This is a fruit forward peppery zin.  A good wine, but I think overrated.  It seems to be lacking something to me.  I think that there are many other choices in the 14-17 dollar range that I would prefer to drink instead.

This is a great wine.  I love the grapefruit in this wine.  There is just a little sweetness in the finish that keeps the wine from being to tart.  I have never been disappointed by a bottle of this wine.  I do think that I liked the 2006 a bit better however.

A great deal for around $10 a bottle.  Light rich fruit, supple tannins.  A great wine to drink right away, everyday.  The whole genesis line is fairly impressive for the price.

This is one of my favorites.  Bold fruit, smooth texture.  Very Paso Robles like tasting of warm weathered big fruit.  It could probably sit for a few more years to soften the tannins but overall an excellent wine.
