Community Tasting Notes 56
November 27, 2014 - To me, this is cool climate CA syrah by way of Northern Rhone, with its herby exotic spice / underbrush. Nicely done if you like the style. Very restrained fruit, with some savory olive character and some nice silkiness to the texture.
November 24, 2014 - Brought to a party y/day we had at the house, it's been sitting open since that time. I do recall tasting the 2011 syrah at the winery a year or so ago, which seemed peppery to me and pretty nice. As for this 2010, shows some faint black pepper, blue and black tones, pretty soft and missing the acidity I would hope to see. Either this wine is light in structure or it all faded out within one day.1 person found this helpful Comment
October 27, 2014 - Great showing, ready to go as a pop 'n pour. wish I could buy more at the $18 price I paid.....Nice red fruit profile, with some spice, white pepper and oak all in balance.
October 26, 2014 - better with age, wish I had another.

October 5, 2014 - Day 1, this reminds me much more of a lighter Anthill pinot than a syrah. Floral, very light, easy to drink. Couple days later it starts to remind of a Brunello with some age. Why? No idea. Pleasant to drink, I should drink the rest of my bottles sooner rather than later.
