    September 12, 2017 - Big wine. Decanted for 3+ hours. This was smooth after the decant but I feel like the oak was still not quite integrated on the first night. We had about 1/3 of the bottle left on the first night, so I put it back in the bottle and pumped the oxygen out. On the second night, this was much better - silky smooth, though I did not get a lot of syrah characteristics out of it. Needs more time IMO.

    July 16, 2017 - Much improved from last tasting 7 months ago - really opening up nicely - decanted and drank as an after dinner treat with friends

    July 5, 2017 - Wife, Mother-In-Law (whom I like) and I drank 2 bottles before, during and after our 4th of July meal consisting of sous vide ribs finished on the grill, wife's great baked beans and an excellent potato gratin. Excellent wine which stood up to the savory food. Divine nose, solid mouth feel without any hint of heat from the relatively high alcohol. Lingering finish. Liked it a lot.
