    June 18, 2016 - Expressive, pleasing aromatics that really resonates Garys' vineyard for me - Black cherry, pomegranate, dark berry, baking spice, and earthy notes. The palate is half-step behind the nose. Good concentration, body, and ripeness on the front end, but comes across as a bit flat, simple, and truncated on the finish to merit a higher score.

    June 6, 2015 - Opened this on the heels of an '09 AP Garys' purchased from the same source. Both had an obvious spritz to them. This vintage's blew off more quickly, but it was still really distracting. The underlying juice was good to drink, but the overall wine was essentially flawed. No clue what to chalk it up to, but definitely wouldn't purchase either vintage again based on this pattern.

    February 9, 2015 - Cherry, black cherry and pomegranate fruit. Purple color, good mouth feel. Some leather and earthiness with subtle oak finish. Good not great.

    8/31/2015 Really liked the mouth feel this time, very visceral. And some nice gravel notes on the finish. Otherwise, observations were similar to the last bottle.

    December 5, 2014 - Big fan of Santa Lucia but this wine was unmemorable. It had all the pieces, nice acidity, good ripe fruit but wasn't as refined or as integrated as I'd want.
