    March 24, 2014 - Great Potential. Still too young, needs 2-3 years more bottle age to mellow the fruit and allow the secondary flavors to mature. Nice savory, bacon fat, slight mushroom. Still a bit of green. looking forward to 2016

    January 5, 2014 - Jammy, over-extracted, and showing too much alcohol on the nose. Baked blueberry and plum notes in the mouth. Felt like something was a bit off with this from the the first taste. Perhaps it was left just a little too long on the vines.

    November 23, 2013 - Light fruit - very pleasant, but nothing special. Will be sure to decant the next one longer.

    October 24, 2013 - Had a bottle of this at Bottega Restaurant in Napa and thought it was terrific...dark, black fruit with smoky pepper notes (almost like bacon) and a long, lingering finish. I think this could use another year or two of aging in the bottle, but this is a giant syrah that is going to drink well for a decade.
