    November 24, 2014 - Decanted 90 minutes and drank over 2 days. On the 2nd day this gained so much complexity and depth. Rich, yet refined, this was the perfect pairing with braised short beef ribs. Has the stuffing to go another 4-5 years.

    October 9, 2013 - Consistent with previous bottle note. Dang! I only gave it one more year.

  • corkscrews Likes this wine: (90 points)

    June 22, 2013 - A nose of dark fruits and spice, dark black in color. A medium to full bodied Syrah, with blackberry, plum, cherry, with milk chocolate and spice on finish. In a perfect drinking zone, was very good. www.winelx.com
