    August 7, 2014 - Purchased in 2010 and cellared for 4+ years. Dark opaque red, aromas of stewed plums, dark chocolate, a touch of spice, and wet earth. Very powerful, intense aromas but not complex or attractive. Good acidity and balance, but a bit dirty with flavors of black fruits, dirt, and damp wine cellar. Finishes clean and dry. Really doesn't have much Syrah character. Drink now.

    November 1, 2013 - smells well northern rhone syrah, not earthy but more like a grill brick with under tones of subtle red fruit and dried potpourri, the palate has a gorgeous texture, plums, very one dimensional but not in a bad way hint of raspberry

    Conc: Solid lovely drinking at its peak I think now

    April 7, 2013 - I loved this bottle. It was beautiful, authentic, and alive. Wish I had more. Not to mention the value: under $20? That is crazy these days.

    March 23, 2013 - Solid, good food wine. Syrah at 12.5%, what a pleasant change. Served against a grilled sirloin, and that was nice. Nice minerality in the core, purple fruit. Finish was a bit short, but a pleasant wine and drinking well now.

    March 3, 2012 - This has really settled into its groove, showing deeply smoky and meaty Syrah notes amid a graphite minerality. The texture is all vieilles vignes richness. This has some time to go but is really delicious now.
