‘Excellent – 91 Points’ for 2008 Syrah Tous les Jours


Marc Hinton of

‘Excellent – 91 points’ for our 2008 Syrah Tous les Jour from Marc Hinton of


” The taste as it spreads softly across the palate generates flavors more commonly found in wines costing three times as much. The long lush pleasing finish cleanses and as you take another bite, the wine beckons you back to repeat the experience. Serve this with almost any hearty pasta, pizza, roasted or grilled meat or for this price a perfectly cooked bacon cheeseburger! This certainly fits the bill for an everyday drinking wine. I wish all my days included a bottle of this.”

Wine Harlots Review of RGB 2011

  Wine Harlots Review of RGB 2011: August 5, 2011


“Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains.” — Diane Ackerman 

You’ll have serious sense-memory overload with Andrew Murray Vineyards RGB 2010, an amazing white Rhône blend. The aromas and flavors are hypnotic, jasmine, Granny Smith apples, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, orange blossom honey with mineral notes and a racy acidity. A serious glass of wine, at a wallet-friendly price-point.
