Paired with smoked duck. Surprising weight and structure for a 6 year old syrah. Need to pick up a couple more bottles next time I'm over in Sonoma. Fantastic wine, decanted for an hour, but still think another 3 years would uncover its true potential.
Sadly I didn't take detailed notes while tasting this, several days ago. I do remember being impressed with the balance and elegance. More restrained in style than most Chalk Hill reds, even with 15.5% alcohol it felt lean, complex, and subtle. Entering its prime this year I think, but plenty of years left in it.
