February 19, 2017 - Nose: Dusty (talc?), leafy, leather with a hint of eucalyptus or menthol
Taste: Supple, integrated fruit but not distinct or precise. A bit zesty on the finish but not in a negative way. Hints of black olive throughout. Very nice, long finish.

November 17, 2016 - Wonderful bottle; right in its drinking window. Don't recall the tasting specifics as I was too tired to post notes last night. All I will say is the drinking window here is too short; this is in a good place now and I don't see it following off for at least 3-4 years.

April 13, 2015 - Doubted as to how well this simply named "Red Wine" could follow 2003 SQN Papa syrah. Should have had no doubts -- glorious. Unfortunately last bottle.

January 3, 2015 - DEEP RICH BERRY FRUIT IN THE NOSE AND FLAVOR WITH BLACK CHERRIES AND BLACKBERRIES. NICE COMPLEXITY AND A MEDIUM TO LONG FINISH.

May 25, 2013 - Dep purple in color. Not a huge nose but a huge wine. Dense black fruit, especially blueberry, fruit leather and butterscotch. Spicy and unctuous. Long finish. The wine is reminiscent of Shafer Hillside Select, with a tad more sweetness. Total crowd pleaser.
