90 points from Robert Parker's "Value Issue:" "The 2006 Humbaba Proprietary Red (60% Syrah, 40% Petite Sirah) exhibits a dense opaque ruby/purple color as well as a big, peppery, earthy nose offering hints of root vegetables interwoven with sexy black currant liqueur. Full-bodied, opulent, juicy, and succulent, it will be drinkable for 3-4 years. These wines continue to impress me as elegant examples of Rhone Ranger blends." (Aug. 2008) The grapes that make up the Humbaba blend are from cool climate Syrah of the Russian River Valley and Rincon Valley and Petite Sirah from southern Napa Valley and the incredible Red Hills of Lake County. Each of these vineyards adds to the symphony of complex aromas and flavors, and all have contributed to the supremely balanced character of this wine. Wonderful aromas and flavors of blueberries, black pepper and menthol herb. The tannins are refined and long. A very well balanced wine that fills and caresses the mouth. The integrated oak and creamy texture help make this wine a hedonistic experience.
