October 15, 2014 - Concerned by previous note, I opened one of these. Not totally flat, but indeed not a whole lot going on here. Drink up.

October 11, 2014 - Rather than call this flawed, I'll just say past its prime. Lots of sediment, dark and opaque, and as it opened up it just got flat instead of integrating. Still has that Syrah funk, and intend to use for a pot roast or similar.1 person found this helpful Comment

March 20, 2014 - judgement of sweden - wines from oregon and washington state (Operaterassen, Stockholm): well structured, classic syrah with more emphasis on leather, underbrush etc rather than jammy shiraz. but there is a note of bitterness (from the oak?) that I could have been without.

March 24, 2013 - This is densely colored garnet and nearly opaque. The smells are hoisin, meat, smoke, camphor, blackberry, pepper, and subtle spices. The tastes are dark chocolate, pepper, cedar, and blackberry fruit. The acidity is nice and the tannins are velvety.
