Not Falcon?

[label]Meinert 2002 “Devon Crest” (Devon Valley) – 75% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot, 14.5% alcohol. Those who can’t see the label guess this is syrah, and while there’s a little too much green pepper (a varietally-characteristic amount, which I find pleasant but some won’t) for it to be syrah, the lusty/smoky aspects of the wine go seem to head in that direction. There’s no lack of musky wood, and the wine’s a bit heavy, but despite the slight sludginess it’s fairly representative of its whats and wheres. (7/08)
