    October 15, 2016 - Needed a long time to open up; should have decanted.

    March 12, 2016 - Deep dark Syrah with lovely dark fruit flavors backed up with licorice and tar. Give this a good decant to really let it express itself.

    February 15, 2016 - Two for Valentines - Maybach, Epoch (Home): Purple in color. The nose is great, really deep with black raspberries, beef blood, and black pepper. On the palate, this is big. Firm tannins. Lots of black raspberry fruit. Very deep and it unwinds slowly in the glass. This needs more time. We save half the bottle for Day 2, so I will check it out later. I would still continue to hold these.

    January 23, 2016 - This is a massive wine. Dark and inky. Stains the glass. While I don't often drink this style of wine, I think it is a great example of a big paso syrah. Fruit forward and high alcohol, a nice treat on a cold winter day. 8 years old now, and doesn't seem to be fading at all.

    December 26, 2015 - Blind Post-Christmas Lunch Tasting: Served double blind at lunch. Inky purple to black in color. Big decadent nose has sweet blackberry compote, creosote, smoke and black pepper. Palate is also rich and decadent with sweet, jammy fruit and lower acid. Loads of spice and pepper. Just enough acid to keep the wine moving on the palate. A bruiser. Not my sweet spot these days but of a high quality.
