Community Tasting Notes (47) Avg Score: 90.5 points

  • Nose: Even after being open for 3 hours, the nose is wound a bit tight with black cherries, olives, violets, black fruits, and some pepper notes. There is a density to the nose when it does show some of itself off.

    Taste: Full bodied with medium+ acidity and chewy tannins. The feel is silky, but very youthful at the same time with black cherries, olives, black fruits, pepper notes, and raspberries.

    Overall: This is still quite young almost 3 years on from my last bottle. It still needs time, but there is a lot to like with what's there right now.

  • 13.5% alcohol. Moderately proportioned, surprisingly juicy on the front end, but showing rather rugged, structured, and gripping on the back end. Offers up a profile of purple fruits along with more savory suggestions of meat, olive, and a whole cluster derived spiciness. First of three bottles; I will likely wait a minimum of 3 years before opening another.

  • Slow ox'd around 45 min before serving. Violet core with a clear rim. The nose shows a mix of brine, dark berries & fig. Full bodied with a balance of fruit & savory components. Complexity is added with the whole cluster spiciness. The mouthfeel here is exactly what I look for in Syrah. Generous fruit balanced with strong acid & tannic grip which emerges strongly as the wine warms. This wine came at me in waves & what I loved is that with all of the complexity & nuance, it was approached and enjoyable to drink. Excellent.

  • CT blind tasting group at David's: Liked but didn't love this - a nice scent of red fruits and green olives with faint stemmy accents, medium weight and graceful on the palate with bright acids and faint tannin, though not particularly complex.
