    November 26, 2015 - 4yrs from my last bottle. Needed a couple hours to really show well. Exposing wine of pepper and spice and a bit of coffee. Early in the evening the oak notes were mixed up with the fruit, but with some time this receded and the fruit seemed much more pure. Plenty of purple fruit, with oak spice. Lengthy finish with pepper, spice, and mocha. Smooth and integrated, with a nuanced polished style.

    October 12, 2014 - Gorgeous. Very ripe dark fruited syrah flavor. Served blind next to the Texier Cote Rotie, this was obviously the California wine. But avoids much of the over ripe jamminess of some similarly big New World syrahs. Beautiful and in a lovely place right now.

    September 19, 2014 - Big smooth and full of dark fruits. I need to learn to let these rest to develop that slim Jim, BBQ thing I like so much. As it is, very balanced and satisfying. Good wine.

    August 2, 2014 - Gave this a quick decant when we arrived at the table and let it sit for perhaps 15 minutes before pouring…deep purple color with an elegant floral nose mixed with blue fruit and pepper…just glorious with the first sip…will let remaining bottles age as I think this will improve.

    January 25, 2014 - - Purple color with medium forming legs and aromas of blackberry, black pepper and coffee. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of blackberry and cherry with a medium/full body. Polished texture - Popped and poured which was a mistake. It needed about an hour which we discovered on the last few sips. By that time a terrific, well balanced and flavorful wine emerged
