Anybody have any insight into this? I'm not a bourbon fan, generally, but this sounds interesting.

My family in Germany buy Spanish red by the case for 20-something Euros, and it's much like a nice Tempranillo blend, something the LCBO would never let out of the bag here for a really affordable price.

Saint Desirat Saint Josef 2010 (Syrah) - really good. Has strong character and expresses the grape well, still very approachable. Far from a pot of aussie jam.
Quite a few Northern / Southern Rhones to check out.

decent value. A nicely-structured red showing the 60/40 Cab-Merlot blend really well with some gentle oak, and I really like it. May age a few if I can keep my hands off them; the tannins are already approachable.
