    July 1, 2014 - Noticed a LOUD note of cedar when I first decanted it, but that faded pretty quickly. Still, a bright woodsy nose throughout. Just a hint of eucalyptus on the palate. Very enjoyable with a grilled steak.

    January 15, 2013 - Agree exactly with Richardhod. Thank goodness the forte is not very noticeable in this vintage. Very good especially given the QPR.

    January 8, 2013 - With roast lamb, a Scott Harvey Syrah, his 06 Mountain selection. Not as complex as the Buena Vista Ramal Chard I had beforehand, but once it opened up after 30 minutes, it zinged and zipped around nicely, as Scott's picking a point tends to do. Still a little port-y, but only slightly, and that addition just mellows and keeps it relatively one-dimensional but very round and comforting. A good, deep fun winter wine. I think I prefer it with lamb stews and deep flavours like that, but it was lovely with the roast leg.
