Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 89.7 points

  • Opened and drank with grilled pork chops, roasted potatoes, and broccoli. Sweet oaky nose with plenty of meaty nuances, dark, ripe cherries, and even some motor oil. The palate is big, round, extracted, and supple, bringing loads of juicy black fruit, leather, herbs, meat stock, soy sauce, and ripe raspberries into the finish, which is dry, saturated, and has good length. Feels like this is nearing peak so I would drink over the next few years through 2018.

    Now mature, syrah still driving the total with fruity mineral and tar nose

    Smooth on palate with S pepper supplemented by spice and dark integrated tannins

  • Nose remarkably similar to syrah, with addition of almonds. On plate lots of fruit, tannins more pronounced than for the syrah...amazing what a little mourvedre can do.

    Interesting WA twist on GSM (I suppose this is an Sgm - since 80% syrah)
