Running on the cork and some TCA. Drinkable, but I'll refrain from rating.

Almost too young to rate. This was popped after arrival cross country and initially was acidic, with a (possible) slight effervescence. After two hours in the decanter, the dark fruit and earthy notes started to emerge, but this definitely needs more time, but seems to have potential.

Informal notes, but with a decant, this showed very well. Dark fruit, young tannic structure, but softened by the ample dark fruit. Light acidity. Initially, this was somewhat flat, but bloomed with a decant and certainly gained much needed structure. I may be underrating this at 91+.

C: Light bricking. N: Dried herbs, some leather and dark, dried fruit. P: Earthy, dried herbs, dried red and dark fruit. Light to medium body. Medium acidity and integrated tannins. F: Medium with pronounced earthiness. This definitely benefited from a decant

I agree with the "Gamay" like statement. Light body, with minimal fruit. What did show was light red fruit and some spice, with a hint of effervescence and medium+ acidity. Short finish with no structure. Overall, no one hated it, but certainly no one thought it was good. One person guessed box wine. 83-84

2011 Tensley Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard

Santa Barbara County more

Not the big, extracted Syrah I think of when CA is mentioned. Cool climate fruit, medium body, dark fruit that smoothed out with a decant. Good, but I didn't think nearly as highly of this as the pros, but hey, what do I know.

Seemed very young and benefited from a lengthy decant. Too oaky at first, it fleshed out with time (a day) and became much better. Dark fruit, cobbler, oak, butter. Hold

Hmmm, unlike my last bottle, this was very nice. Dark fruit, smoke, earth with a firm tannic finish. I opened this for a sauce I was making, but it was a very nice surprise. 90-91+.

I think the reason I got such a good deal on these is that they were heat damaged. Every bottle I've opened had extensive running down the cork, with one leaking. That said, the wine held up pretty well. Some dark fruit, raisin, earth and dried herb. Medium tannin and body. Everyone liked it, but I'm sure it wasn't at its best. Poured from magnum.

12/21/2015 - RDHudak wrote: 85 points

The third bottle from a case, all of which have shown completely different than my prior experience with this item, which came from two different sources. Muted fruit with minimal complexity and a short finish. The cork looked perfect and the wine showed no flaws, just seemed like a vastly different product. This came from a lot that was "just uncovered" and was implied that it was recently discovered at the winery.

This was popped and consumed so easily, we didn't take notes. It was medium bodied wine with plenty of dark fruit and spice, but not over the top. Medium finish that went really well with our NC BBQ. A very nice wine for the money. I need to get on the list and a case for next year. 91+
