Has to be one of the best sub-$10 reds around, and at $6.99 an amazing bargain. The 2003 Blackwing didn't strike me as being quite as long as the 2002, but I think it's close to the equal of that excellent wine. Expansive, pure nose displays blackberry liqueur, spicy peach, and just the right level of sweet oak. Not complicated, but an extremely satisfying wine for the price. - HK 2006-12-18
