Aromas of honeysuckle, white flowers and papaya. The flavors match but add a white pepper note. Smooth, well-rounded body. I prefer a bit more acidity but this is tasty as is.

Quite round with nice mouthfeel. A bit of honey and a little nuttiness on the palate. I would like to see a bit more palate cleansing acidity on the finish, however it still finishes clean.

A hint of plastic on the nose is a bit off putting, but the fruit is good with a nice depth and pepper notes, and has mellowed sine I last tasted it.

Delicious wine that combined a streak of earthiness with a nicely concentrated core of red fruit. Great balance and it's easy to see that time does very good things to Jim's wines.

This has really improved and blossomed over time in bottle -- reminding of the promise to wait for some reds to age beautifully before uncorking. Savory with hints of inkiness, blueberry, plum, herbs. Oak is beginning to recede into the background, but not fully there yet. Dry, yet more velvety with fine grainy/gritty tannins, quite a bit of acidity, and a lingering finish.

Was expecting more from this one based on the scores. I think the lower alcohol on this one leads to the lack of depth that I was expecting. Ok for a mid week wine at a discounted price.

Tasting, brief note. Dense, chewy black fruit with good density. slight backward and oaky for right now, but this has good concentration and textures, so I like the potential here 2016 forward.

Tasting, brief note. Black berry and cherry with the rounded edges of Merlot, while also well balanced and showing good spice that was easy to enjoy today. My favorite of the three 2012s tonight.

Tasting, brief note. Comes across as much riper vs the 2009. Good perfume and spice along with ripe black berries and plum. Also very good concentration. Needs another couple of years and I think this will be as good as its 2009 counterpart.

I liked this quite a bit, and thought it more in line with the N. Rhone than the other Cali Syrahs in the flight, the crowd at this tasting didn't see it the same way. They saw it as obviously Californian with about a 50/50 split like/dislike. I got leather and pepper with dark fruits backing it up. Not too heavy.

Lots of tropical fruit on nose and palate with good density and lots of good flavors that are easy to enjoy. I am rarely a fan of American Viognier, and this showcases the heat on finish with which I often struggle. a wine I'd err on the side of serving colder vs cellar temp.

Fab QPR. I opened this and drank over two nights. It didn't really seem to change a lot. Great CA syrah. This was my first taste of this producer and vineyard but both were great. Esp for $25 price point. Loads of blackberry and blackcurrant. Jammy with just a bit of spice. I'm a PN drinker and this really appealed to me. Seemed very youthful.

Fantastic big nose of ripe blackberries and just a hint of pepper and smoke. Palate isn't quite up to the high performing nose but lovely nonetheless. There was almost a cab-like fruit forwardness on opening but balanced out nicely after a couple hours of decanting. The drinking window through 2017 seems to significantly underestimate the life of this wine. One of the top Syrahs I've had in the last year.

This has lovely aromatics with a smoky start, grilled meat, some black currant/blackberry/black licorice, hints of coffee and oak. The palate is big but structured with flavors that match though the fruit is more pronounced than the savory notes though both are there. A bit more oak on the palate along with medium+ tannins and medium acidity make for a full-bodied but balanced wine.
