    September 11, 2017 - Corked, but you could taste beautiful fruit lying underneath. Too bad.

    August 22, 2017 - Pnp, drank over 45 min. Beautiful fruit & floral nose, delicious blue/black fruit, and a smooth balance. Everyone enjoyed it.

    June 23, 2017 - A great Denner Syrah. Nice plum and blackberry flavors with a nice floral aroma and taste from the Viognier. Still young and could use more time. Nice finish with some black pepper. Glad to have more bottles to see where this one goes.

    December 20, 2016 - 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier
    Aged 16 months in 228L Barriques, 60% Neutral, 30% Once Used French and Hungarian, 10% New French. Fermented 30% Whole Cluster

    Decanted for over 2 hours, which at this point it still needs.
    Medium-plus intensity in aromas of ripe blackberry, plum and violet pastilles that integrate well with scents of black olive, rosemary and camphor, black licorice, smoked red meats and a vein of wet sidewalk and rocky mineral with a trace of white pepper.
    On the palate, a lush Syrah, with bold flavors of concentrated blackberry, plum and fig with a smoky edge that shows notes of bacon and grilled red meats that evolve to show black olive, white pepper, Star anise, earth, crushed violets, bramble, mineral and crushed rock.
    Texturally this wine is silky smooth and moderate-plus in mid palate density. The finish lingers pleasantly, and softly in intensity. Acid is medium-plus keeping this fresh and alive.
    Overall, drinks well now, but will continue to cellar well for sometime. Decant recommended.
