    March 13, 2016 - Dark dense colour almost Coke like. Dark berry jam, tar. Doesn't do much. Perhaps worth cooking with but very average, if not below average.

    November 2, 2015 - Very nice example of Rhone wines at a very reasonable price point. Mild tannins but nice fruit and acidity. Wish I had more.

    July 18, 2015 - Sulfur notes reduced after vigorous decanting/aeration. Plum and pepper aromas, with a little blackcurrent and vanilla. With food, a sawdusty oak note became quite strong and un-integrated (only 30% of the wine aged in barrel). There are several other faults too, including a stalky under-ripeness and too much barnyardy Brett notes. A touch overtannic too.

    June 6, 2015 - light body, lots of violets, touch of stalkiness
    Firm tannins, lots of perfume, peppery
    Really drinkable
    Still tastes very young though not entirely sure it will improve either

    February 5, 2015 - Not for everyone, but a nice drink. The acidity has really faded over the last year, leaving a fine, medium bodied, French-styled Syrah. There's a nice hint of barnyard funk on the nose (if you like that), with meat, blood, minerals, and definite pepper on the flavor profile. Certainly more savory than fruit-driven.
