  • Drank with Lunch at Veritable Quandary, no formal notes. Drinking great...was actually hard to put down at lunch, it just kept getting better and better with an hour open. Less of the meaty character and into a wine that just shows the greatness of great Syrah with great winemaking. No perceived gaps, great mouthfeel, long finish of bright red and black fruits.

  • Ok, I agree with the previous notes on this wine. Jammy... blah blah blah.

    Funny thing is that I let this decant for a couple/few hours tonight and it turned into a meat/beef jerk bomb. Delicious... didn't exactly go with my bbq brisket early on, but since dinner, wow, its a meat bomb. Last one I had near this was the "God only knows" Grenache, from Cayuse

    For a wine enthusiast this is very interesting turn of taste.

  • Dark ruby with magenta rim, red fruit nose. Dry with dusty tannins, medium fruit with a slight bitter note. Opened two nights ago and paired poorly with fresh caught salmon or lateer with mushroom penne. Put away and not much better when tasted last night. Perplexing as this in one of my favorite wines. Not a bad bottle, just too jammy and boring. OK, tonight and another chance at redemption, more time has resulted in a much more balanced wine. While still full bodied fruit, the acid which was lacking has started to emerge and the tannins have lost the bitter edge, all is good in Rasaland. Getting some leather and earthy flavors but would like a bit more acid. Best to drink up now.

  • Decanted 1.5 hours. Silky smooth as tannins are well integrated. Lush fruit, but not too forward. A bit of spice offers the only secondary flavor. Medium finish.
