    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.

    July 4, 2015 - When I had this wine three years ago I was mighty impressed and found all sorts of telltale Syrah characteristics. With a moderate amount of age on it this particular bottle has settled way down--it took time and air to bring out subtle notes of leather and olive, and the wine remained remained gentle and reserved until the end. Although there was no "wow factor" of the sort that comes with some of my favorite Rhone wines, this was not a big fat "Californian-style" blob. Much less of the olives than the 6/20 note. Pleasantly low alcohol. Good.
