Buller Calliope Rare Muscat on cinderalla wine, amusing.
IL Bosco Syrah 2005. Day 1 - Way too akward/young. Sour Cherry Juice and bitter tannins Let decant for a day. Day 2 - Totally changed. Dark Fruit, mid weight, spices, a very slight creamyness, bright tannins, high acid (for a red, think Barolo). Overall, imagine sryah made like a Barolo, then you'll understand why you need to leave it in the cellar for another 3-5 years before you think of drinking it.

Be sure visit Tablas Creek! Also, Ian McPhee's Grill is a fantastic resteruant (Moderately priced too).
The Turley Grenache may be a winery only thing as I did not see any in the latest mailer either. Petite Shyrah, however, is in the mailer. I highly recommend the Grenache, I would decribe it s a caricature of the some CDPs (the more Grenache heavy bottling).

It was impressed, more so than the petite shryah
Drank one of my Havens reserve already, it was pretty impressive. Looks like a killer merlot on the cinderalla wine today, Meroi Ros Di Buri '06........ too much wine... must resist
^ That Steyr AUG is neat. You can actually buy them here?
Del Dotto Cave Barrel tasting is pretty amazing. Others thumbs up Pride Mountain Shaffer Duckhorn Food for Thought Experience
