  • Great drinking right now. Rich blackberries, spicy cherries and softening tannins. Good for another 5+ years.

  • This fantastic syrah was decanted for four hours. For some reason, the nose reminded me of driving in the rain through the redwoods on the 101. On the nose there was plenty of pepper, smoked game, damp forest floor, earthy tones behind a fence of dark berries. Full bodied and seamless. On the palate there are plenty of macerated blackberries and raspberries, then it moves to smoked meats, and the cooler climate olive tapenade and brine shows up. It paired perfectly with our grilled tri tip last night. This wine is full bodied but has such great depth and balance with the acidity keeping things in check. Another winner from Macario!

  • This was great on opening but shut down after about 30 minutes. I recorked and waited until day 2. Very nice. A glass left for day 3 was slightly oxidized. I think a couple more years is called for. This is consistent with the 09. Nice nose of grilled meats, black pepper and black raspberry fruit. Great acidity. Nice fruit, but by no means a ton of fruit. Great juicy texture. very nice. Some real value here.

  • Decanted through the Vinturi for 1+ hours and consumed over 4 hours with and after dinner. Inky scent upon PnP shortly followed by an enticingly complex bouquet of blueberry, black fruit, black pepper, iodine, smoked meat, fresh cut green herbs, and later traces of baking spice & coffee. Juicy tart blueberry & dark fruits, meat, iron, black pepper and garden herbs on the palate. Masculine, bold and full-bodied with great precision, supported by ultra-fine grippy tannins, good acidity and a palate-staining pleasant lingering finish. This kept getting better and better as the night went on. A real treat with or without food, and certainly a all-star in the making.
