  • 15.6% alcohol. Bottle 2096 of 6619. Youthful purple, color. Dark cherry and plum on the nose blended with floral notes, soy, green peppercorn, and a touch of wood. The palate took about 30 minutes to open, but when it did, it pumped out dark fruit, lavender, spice, green tobacco, and pepper. Structurally, this medium-bodied wine has balanced acidity and fully integrated tannins. The finish maintains the fruit intensity and supports a complex herbal note. Overall, I was very impressed by the balance and complexity of this wine, and if one wants a complex example of this varietal, I would not hesitate to put this on the table.

  • wow, opened.... still smells like young juice right out of the tasting room. big fruit, slight secondaries like cola, vanilla, toast, raisin, blackberry. Big, but rounding into form. Dense, deep, murky.

  • Cellared since release..15.6alc...Still fantastic! Dark liqueured berry fruit…silky smooth and creamy, sweet glycerin yet totally savory. Dusty dry graphite powder, sawdust tannins….probably just a tad bit drying out, but still enough sweet fruit around……dark chocolate, licorice, kirsch liqueur, white pepper spice, grilled meat rubbed with an herbed spice and coffee grounds! Tasty Syrah here!

  • Pop and pour and consumed over 2 hours. No formal notes. This is in a great place right now. Brambly blackberry and black fruit dominated on the attack, with a red fruit and spice mid-palate followed by a creamy red and blue fruit finish. Well layered, with excellent balance. Delicious.

  • This wine has really improved from the last bottle I tried some time ago. So happy to have a bottle left but sorry to have consumed the others before they reached their prime.
