    November 1, 2013 - More mature than my last bottle 2 years ago, but probably not any better. A little uneven, but enjoyable. Tobacco, smoke, anise. A touch boozy.

    November 16, 2012 - Similar notes to previous, popped and poured with dinner. The fruit now shines through as the oak has faded to the background. This is silky on the palate with a medium long finish.

    September 14, 2012 - Black currant nose - almost raisiny; a whiff of smoke. Still a bit tight, but nicely balanced with fine acidity and a sweet, ripe, black fruit core of blackberries, currants, black cherries, black plum, and cassis, Secondary notes of tar, graphite, and black tea. A touch of rosemary laces the coffee finish. Good length.

    March 18, 2012 - Not decanted, consumed over ~1 hour. Medium bodied with mixed red & black berry notes and prominent oak on nose and palate - a bit more than the fruit could handle, unfortunately. Not as badly overoaked (overtoasted?) as one or two other bottles I've had recently, but still enough to lead to some disappointment in an otherwise nice little syrah. Maybe some air will help with the other one.

    February 25, 2012 - Full bodied, smooth mouthfeel with mix of red and dark berries, some vanilla sweetness initially but pepper and oak on the finish. Decent acidity and subtle tannins. Similiar to a CDP or Gigondas. Good value for $15. This may be the first "Biodynamic" wine I have enjoyed.
