  • Long wait for these, but after 6 years in the cellar this has finally come around.

  • Beautiful wine. Takes some time to open-up. Initially nose and flavours of leather and dirt. After 15 minutes, the "awkwardness" dissipated and the wine showed its true potential. Darker fruit flavours (plum). Long finish.

  • PnP and consumed half the bottle the first night. Remaining bottle over the next 2 nights.
    Nice clear appearance, med ruby/purple color, fading to a light ruby/purple rim.
    Nose was in good condition, showing developing aromas that are med intensity, including red fruits like raspberry and red cherry, as well as sweet tobacco and a funky moist soil note that adds complexity and interest.
    The palate shows off a dry wine with med body and med alcohol (listed 13% abv), with flavors that are med intensity, including red cherry, a bit of strawberry, then tobacco, espresso beans, and a mild black pepper spice. There is ample med/med(+) acidity to give vivid freshness to this wine, supporting the med length finish of red fruits and mild spice.
    A very good quality wine that will improve another 2 years in bottle, and drink well through approx 2018.

  • Dark purple in the glass. Initial aromas of barnyard and grape jam. Needed about 1 hour to open up into a complex and smooth Syrah. I have three more from a 1/2 case and they are ready to drink.

  • Very muted at first with some flowers and fruit. But two hours later, black fruit came out along with leather, earth, olives all balanced by acidity and minerality. Nothing over the top, everything in place.
