Rivka Simone 2007 Syrah (Santa Barbara County)

Very rich in fruit, showing masses of jammy blackberries, cherries, raspberries and cola. A good wine, dry and firm in tannins, but a bit direct and primary, and doesn’t seem like an ager due to the softness.  — S.H.   Published 12/15/2009

Rivka Simone 2007 Viognier (Russian River Valley)

There’s good, mouthwatering acidity in this Viognier, but it’s not enough to balance out the sweet directness of the fruit. Tastes like apricot, peach and pineapple jam, almost a dessert wine.  — S.H.   Published 12/15/2009
