    July 30, 2014 - Tremendous classic petite syrah. It is our standard for the grape.

    April 5, 2008 - Not decanted. Deep, virtually opaque purple red color to the rim. Intense aromas of clove, cinnamon, plums and berries on first whiff. Later this settled into why I consider classic SL PS - plums, some cassis, blueberries, mint and blood. Deep and fruit-filled on the palate with no tannins to speak of. Less oak than I recall from other vintages. Moderate finish. Nice wine.

    August 30, 2007 - Even more disappointing than the last bottle, great color, but closed nose, hints of anise and lots of tar which blew off, touch of blueberries. Medium to light weight (and this is a petite syrah!), this had no finish. Pleasant as a quaffer but nothing else. Drink up.

    April 26, 2007 - When I opened the bottle I was sure it was 5 years away from being drinkable. 20 minutes later I said, wow this is so different. When you open it give it time. Deep dark Bing cherry smell and earthy flavors, leather and earth are very present..
