Fairview Goats do Roam White 2007: kinda hot; reminds me of Tablas Creek White. Viognier/Grenache Blanc/Chenin Blanc

Goats do Roam Rose 2008: Tank sample. Drawn off juice from reds, normally Pinotage/Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvedre

Goats do Roam Red 2006: Mostly Shiraz with Pinotage. Aussie-style red with plump fruit.

Goats In Villages Red 2006: Shiraz/Pinotage. Good and tannic. Pinotage definitely there; not super-fruity.

Goat-Roti 2006: Cofermented Shiraz/Viognier. Big and tannic.

Bored Doe 2006: Cab/Merlot/Cab Franc/Petit Verdot. Stellenbosch. Recently bottled; needs time.

Fairview Viognier 2007: Decent alternative to Washington Viognier; acidity there and oak is more subtle.

Fairview Shiraz 2006: Very spicy; lots of berry fruit. No oak; all concrete.

Fairview Pinotage 2007: Bright fruit, a little sweet, nice tannin.

Fairview Beacon Shiraz 2005: Massive. Nice subtle smoke/bacon flavor. Decadent. Nice tannin on the finish.
