just had this wine (again) after deciding to bring it over for a homemade pizza night with friends that appreciate both new and old world style wines, especially rhone style, and value wines at that. I also brought over a real fruit bomb (Foxen- Williamson Dore 04) just for kicks.
the woodcutter's was immediately concentrated and dense on the nose (yes, on the nose) floral in the mouth (more than I care for) but had some deep notes (structure) and a supple frame, all for nifty price. It definitely bridges the gap between new and old world styles.
I love this wine, it's great w/ food (has some barnyard burgundy for sure) but it's also great without (thanks new world). In short, this is one of my favorite, and versatile value wines. The beauty of Torbreck is that almost all of their wines (run rig included) are amazingly consistent, almost 'Ridge'- like in their focus. They also offer some of the complexity that's missing in the (generally) more monochromatic (fruit driven) new world wines. I'm a fan of both worlds, and this wine proves there's a middle ground.

yours truly.

Great wine, Great Value.
David Powell makes really classy wines.
This wine has a great nose, fruit bomb on the palate, and everything works well together.
Also some nice acid that balances the fruit bomb.
