    September 1, 2014 - Not much has changed since last tasting a couple of months ago. I think this has seen its best days and should start drinking it up.

    April 12, 2014 - Popped and poured. It's been over 2 1/2 years since I had a bottle of this vintage. Today it is much lighter that previous notes and a bit fruitier. Nice drinking wine but fell short of a Buty Beast Syrah Clone (2010).

    March 22, 2014 - Dark and opaque but not inky. Fresh, medium intensity nose, blackberry and cherry fruit, pure, not jammy, some hints of meat, brus. Fresh and medium bodied on the palate, juicy, with fine dry tannins, lots of cherry, berry acidity, not overly deep or complex, but works well with my pork chop in a red wine, dried mushroom reduction. Very tasty, and very well balanced, but I wished for some more character.

    September 18, 2013 - I'm very impressed with this wine. Definitely more european in style. Less like Port (big sugar bomb), more like Hermitage....and that's what I looking for. Very good!
