December 15, 2012 - Decanted and returned to bottle. Dense dark garnet. Notes of ashy-mineral, savory earth, blue violet, cassis & currant are highlighted throughout. On the palate this has opened nicely, showing a juiciness to the fruit to balance against powerful concentration. Weighty and polished with creamy tannins and long finishing notes of dark fruit and espresso. Very nice. Drink or hold.

December 1, 2010 - Wow! Yum! Very floral nose, right in your face with the first sips, very bright. But then it fades nicely. Great. Thanks matt!

September 19, 2010 - V.I.P. Northwest Tasting (Farpointe Cellar): The nose had grilled meat and wet leaves, blueberry and stone, and some mushroom at the end. The palate was rich and thick, with meat juice and blueberry, stone and earth, and a good mush room finish.

(K Vintners Phil Lane Walla Walla Valley) Abundant floral notes along with earth and very light streaks of game. Big and packed full of tightly wrapped fruit on the palate. Capped off by a seamless finish. 100% Syrah. Phil Lane Vineyard. Aged in French Burgundy barrels. 14.5% alcohol. 141 cases produced.
