    January 13, 2016 - No official rating -- dont want to bias at this point. 89. wine is drinking well and still showing fruit and complexity. More years to come

    September 17, 2015 - Big fruit of black berries. This went wonderfully with spicy salsa. The finish was big long and fruity with a final moderate and smooth tannin

    January 18, 2015 - Todays bottle was simply a wonderful smooth and luscious mouth with layered fruits and moderate lingering tannin

    October 26, 2014 - Outstanding. And at peak or a year or two away. Color of a great Bordeaux from a warm vintage. Blackberry, cool mint, and freshly showered armpit of a beautiful woman on the nose. Fine but not yet fully resolved tannins in the mid-palate, along with front-of-tongue berries and a sensation of richness and depth. Doesn't finish with great length but rather with a satisfying bite. Perfection incarnate with a grilled rib-eye in front of the TV during a World Series victory.

    May 16, 2014 - This is the fourth bottle I've had and this one showed nicely. There is lots of Dark berry fruits with blackberry being the most prevalent, and immediately a nice medium oak hits to add the first layer; then the Syrah bite hits but it is smooth, supple but quite subtle. The finish is primarily a fruity tannin that has a very smooth mouth feel. This wine is beginning to come into its own.
