    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.

    May 6, 2013 - Decanted approx. 1 hour ... Our second (and last) bottle was far better than our first. Muted nose, but bright, tart red fruits to open with a richer middle and dry, medium-long finish. Very good, but still not a good value at this price point.
