2007 River of Skulls
90 points! "You want black pepper? You’ll get plenty of it in this dry, interesting Rhône blend of Mourvèdre and Syrah. It has briary flavors of wild blackberries, with an edge of leather, tobacco and herbs, and is thoroughly dry. Pretty tannic, too. An interesting wine, and one to watch." - Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
"Tobacco and earth noise. Some shroom? Good cherry notes nice acids like the fruit. Optimistic wine despite River of Skulls name." - Bill Daley, Chicago Tribune, via Twitter, Wine Bloggers Conference 2009
"07 Twisted Oak River of Skulls: Very full dark red berry and spice. Potent but supple at the same time (thnx to the Syrah portion)" - Joe Roberts, 1WineDude, via Twitter, Wine Bloggers Conference 2009
"Twisted Oak Winery. 07 River of Skulls 88% mourverdre/12% syrah. Ripe black cherries, smoke and the earth...love it!" - Kathleen Rake, Between the Vines, via Twitter, Wine Bloggers Conference 2009
"River of Skulls--spanish for Calaveras--this wine could walk a tightrope its got so much finesse and balance." - Lori Narlock, One Day in Wine Country, via Twitter, Wine Bloggers Conference 2009
Plus...... the River of Skulls T-Shirt is great when I'm out playing guitar with one of my bands or if I'm out riding through the hills on my motorcycles.
For $35, two WELL worth the price of admission...
