    May 14, 2013 - Big Syrah still going strong. Lots of dark fruit and cedar. Nice velvety mouth feel. This one can go a few years if you can't get around to drinking it just yet.

    February 15, 2013 - I smell berry/herb, the pallette tastes of cherry and other red fruits with more ripe cherry on the medium finish with spicy oak overtones that fades into eucalyptus notes after a few second. Good, not fantastic, might get better in a couple of years as this is far from being super mature.
