For a wine under $10, this wine is delightfully drinkable. However, it is like other well made California wine: good with Chinese takeout but not memorable.

screw cap wine
Perhaps the previous years' productions were better but the 2005 had a very unrefined taste from beginning to end. We tried the wine with pasta and spiced pork. Along with this wine, we also tried Pillar Box 2006 Padthaway Red and Annie's Lane 2004 Shiraz. Both the Pillar Box and Annies were better than this wine with Annies being the best of the three. Save your money and go for Annie's Lane 2004 Shiraz, if you can find it. It seems that all wine shops in the NYC area are sold out of it.
This is a good drinkable wine that can hold its own against more expensive wines (those up to $40 range). While this wine is not as good as the Pillar Box 2005 Padthaway Red, it is still a good drinking wine with most regular food. It stands up to all types of spicy and dense foods while retaining its flavor. It is slightly sweet and not as dry as I would like but for the money, it is a good buy.
