    September 6, 2014 - Delicious wine. Intense, but not over the top. Still showing plenty of fruit. Perfect with a batch of smokey, sticky ribs.

    December 31, 2013 - Maybe past its prime so drink now. Classic SLNV Petite Syrah. Decanted two hours with some character development over some three hours of consumption. Some spice mellowed by mature berry-like fruit. Very light on the oak. I wish I had another bottle.

    November 14, 2012 - Deep dark ruby with only slight orange on edge. Blackberry, chocolate and leather. Rich full bodied with long finish. Tannins are soft but notice them really drying on the finish. I was pleasantly surprised this is still drinking so well. Must have really been a beast when young.

    March 11, 2012 - Drinking quite well. Still fruit driven but taking on some secondary characteristics.

    June 29, 2011 - This wine aged well despite the recommended dates. Full bodied oak finish well balanced. Like most Petite Sirahs is a great wine for robust food.
