Shane had met Michael Havens at a wine tasting in San Francisco, and was so impressed by his 1999 Bourriquot, that we scheduled a visit to check out the winery and pick up some wines. Unfortunately they are out of the 1999, but we were still very impressed by the winery, the friendly staff and the excellent wines. The winery is small, with low productions (about 15000 cases per year), so as you would expect, the tasting room is small and we would recommend you call ahead. The wines are very impressive and at good prices; we definitely recommend visiting this winery.

2002 Hudson Vineyard Syrah ($40)Rating: C
Feb 4th, 2006
Very dark, almost black. Has 5% Viognier, which gives a much softer finish than you would expect. A very nice wine - best of the winery tasting.
2001 Bourriquot ($36)Rating: B-C
Feb 4th, 2006
62% Cab Franc, 38% Merlot, similar to right bank Bordeaux blends. Very nice wine. Drinking great now and will last years
2001 Reserve Merlot ($36)Rating: B
Feb 4th, 2006
Definitely better than the regular Merlot. Much smoother finish and a great smell. Aged 22 months in French Oak. 10% Cab Franc
2002 Black and Blue ($40)Rating: B
Feb 4th, 2006
50% Cab, 50% Syrah; An Australian style blend using the only Cab grapes from the vineyard. A very easy drinker, nice and smooth. This wine is only made in a few wintages - 10 years since the last production.
2001 Napa Valley Merlot ($24)Rating: A-B
Feb 4th, 2006
Great smell and color but found the wine tight. 5% Cab Franc
2001 Napa Valley Syrah ($24)Rating: A
Feb 4th, 2006
Didn't like this wine. Big and fruity - overshadowed by the Hudson Syrah.
