    July 12, 2014 - Fully body Syrah. Lots of dark fruits and some heat. Fully body. Decanted for about an hour.

    November 18, 2013 - Great Syrah... Deep dark purple and garnet, the aroma of dark fruits filled the air, hits the spot, and has a long finish. This wine will be 93+ in four years

    October 14, 2013 - I was expecting more. Maybe my pallet is changing. When i had the 08, and the 09 I do not remember this having a Zin characteristics. Huge fruit on the nose. Definitely let wine breathe for 2+ hours. you will notice the settle changes over time. I had 2 glasses each night, and I really enjoyed the second night.

    February 20, 2013 - Surprisingly approachable right out of the bottle. Nice fruit and balance but will definitely improve with age. The rest of the bottle consumed the next day imparted slightly more depth but still retained a light smokey flavor with a smooth finish.
