Saviours Rock 2008 Durif (Petite Syrah)

This is going to be a quick post. I'm going to start, on certain wines, giving my tasting notes. I'm still going to write bigger posts, but let's just call the smaller ones "on the go, wine tasting notes." So I'm drinking a Durif aka a Petite Syrah:

Nose: Cassis, pepper, hints of beef jerky, raisins, dried cranberries, some minerality, complex.

Taste: Pepper, Rasberry, green broccoli, chocolate on the front, beef jerky and black cherry on the finish, a long finish, and very well made.

You can find this wine at Grocery outlet for 9.99, pick it up if you get a chance and leave a comment.


  1. I paid $13.99 here in oakland CA Grocery outlet. It is lovely,great legs and rich, deep aged cab quality to it.

  2. It's priced at $13.99 at my local Grocery Outlet in Idaho as well. However, I'm going to pick some up and will return to comment further.
