 Tasted by Lobonick on 11/12/2012 & rated 88 points: Rich and dark with lots of spices and stewed dark fruits. Might be just a bit cooked since I remember the previous bottle being much fresher and livelier. (867 views)
 Tasted by andtheodor on 5/27/2012 flawed bottle: Pruny, grape, smoke, tomato, VA nose. Strawberry jam and stewy fruit palate. Heat damaged? Ugh. (1109 views)
 Tasted by Lobonick on 4/30/2011 & rated 92 points: Fantastic wine. Graphite and very dark licorice dominate and are downright enchanting. Loads of fruit in this very dark wine. Lovely floral nose, and a palate that lets the syrah tannins come through. Outstanding wine. (1401 views)
