    May 13, 2017 - Based on other reviews I only had this open ~45 minutes in the bottle before drinking. Lacked the explosive fruit I was expecting ... tasted almost 'dumb'; what little I had left over the second night had a little more dark fruit, but the best was probably after 12 hours, not 24. Wait at least another year on my last bottle.

    April 14, 2017 - Coravin 1st night. Absolutely delicious with no time on the decant. Remainder of bottle, decanted only 45 minutes and amazing. Chewy balanced delightful

    March 25, 2017 - Stunningly delicious. Wonderful nose at opening - big, sophisticated & complex. Let breath for ~30 minutes. Deep red, inviting, luxurious, long finish. Paired beautifully with bone-in NY Strip. In a great place... so glad I have more left.

    March 9, 2017 - Same as all of my other notes on this wine. Decanted for a couple of hours just for the hell of it, but it really didn't even need it. Taking a step back, this really is a gorgeous bottle of wine. Perfectly balanced and easily one of the best consistent Syrahs in California. Drink now and over the next 5-7+ years. Still had a nice spine and tannic frame to encompass the awesome core of black and purple fruit.
