smooooth! moderate tannins, slight raspy but that is because this is NOT a stand lalone wine; it's Italian! had with Barrata, Heirloom tomatoes, vineagarette, sausage. slight hay taste / smell to finish. Excellent food pairing wine

Howell Mountain more

5/15/2015 - Chapel Likes this wine: 90 points

light wine with all the fruit and what ever body it has when you first taste it. The, it turns to a watery liquid. Suggest to START with this wine and not further down the progression of wines. Probably even before a Pinot Noir

2005 Clarendon Hills Syrah Moritz

more

5/10/2015 - Chapel Likes this wine: 94 points

What a wonderful surprise. right out of the bottle this bold, deep wine was smooth! The firm but subtle licorice flavor was the type of sweetness only a master chef could have designed. Drank it as a stand alone and spent all afternoon lounging in it. 20 or so minutes after uncorking it there was yet a higher gear of smoothness.

Uncorked an hour and it was still wound up and acidic. Decanted and improved. Very good stand alone but with a fine ribeye it did not compliment well. Still young?

2008 Garrison Creek Cellars Syrah

Walla Walla Valley more

3/15/2015 - Chapel Likes this wine: 93 points

Silky, rich fruit without being sweet or forward. Can taste a bit of ROH in it yet meaning this wine is still young even though it's drinkable now. Left half a bottle uncorked all night and 10 hours later it still has body and fruit and a it of ROH. In my opinion this baby has years still left in it. Say 2020-2022 it'll still be a great, better(?) wine

one of the better cabs of the night. uncorked it about 5+ hours before and get to room temp. At first not too thrilled. An hour later after sipping different wines this turned into a gem. My rating of a 93 is conservative and good go to 95
