  • Open 4 hours. Meduim bodied,cool climate Syrah profile. Some tannins, herbs, pepper, dark fruits. Still plenty of structure but this bottle was softer than one 2 years ago. 92 points

  • Opened an hour prior to serving. Black tangy cherries, tar, balsamic, mesquite on the nose. Smells awesome.

    Full and rich on the palate, but doesn't go into "too-rich" territory. Great acidity and black peppercorn on the finish. This seems like it's drinking at peak, with excellent density all the way through. Absolutely marvelous stuff.

  • The nose showed blackberry fruit, along with hints of savory herbs, raw meat and cedar. On the palate, I found silky textures of medium weight, displaying pliant dark fruit, licorice and spice, which became very prominent into the close. Notes of bitter chocolate, blackberry, black licorice and fine tannin lined the palate throughout the finish.

    Where this wine is going is hard to tell. I wanted more depth on the nose and palate, but the finish continued to make me wonder how it may evolve. I tasted this over the course of four hours as it sat in a decanter.

  • This wine appears to be in just a perfect spot right now. Paired with a garlic pork loin and the flavors in the pork and the wine came together beautifully. It's a meatier, floral, leathery wine. Definitely has some life left, but not sure it's getting much better.

  • Fairly consistent with the last bottle, still big and brawny, with plenty of fruit and Syrah typicity, yet lacking enough acidity (for my tastes). Compared with how this wine showed early in its life, I think that it has now grown too big and glossy for my tastes.
