    September 24, 2016 - Fantastic, with another year in bottle bringing out more complexity without losing any fruit. 12.2%

    August 5, 2016 - Based on the results from the last bottle decided to give this a decant before drinking. After two hours in the decanter - first sip was a bit shrill - lots of acid - not much else. Followed this one glass for quite a while as the drinking was not too easy. By the four hour mark - the wine just blossomed like a flower. Savory but with a finish of black cherry, then later plum and tar. The last glass was incredible! My conclusion is that you need to give this way more air than expected in order to appreciate its charms - consumed directly from bottle it is tight, acidic and savory, but four hours in the decanter reveals the beautiful dark fruit and tertiary notes.

    June 19, 2016 - Thinking this may be an off bottle. Nose has kind of a meaty funk that is just a shade too much to be appealing. On the palate the wine is drinking very tight - not expressive. Same on day 1 and day 2. Hoping the other 3 in my cellar will be better.

    April 2, 2016 - Quick taste on PopnPour. Moderately aromatic black pepper meaty funk, med+ acidity, med- weight, relatively complex olive tapenade charcuterie savory components dominate with some dark berry, med/med- chalky tannins. Drinking very well and typical for A-R high altitude syrah in a good drinking window now with no hurry.

    October 10, 2015 - 12.2% abv. Very dark ruby, expressive aromas. On the palate, dark fruit, blood, smoke and stone. Good depth and intensity, lingering aftertaste. This is an extremely distinctive wine from a famously cool vineyard. Will continue to improve.
