Far better than what I was expecting from the other comments. Very solid, good SCM styled wine. Definitely not a RRV fruit explosion, but more in the mid weight style.

Bought Costco - maybe it was flawed but man this was bad. I kept thinking it was maybe cut with Syrah or something as the profile was just odd. Tried next day and the same. Had to pour it out - and that’s quite rare for me...

Seemed off. Had the 15 Anderson Valley a few days later that was far better. Not sure what’s going on with this one.

Really outstanding wine - an elegance I wasn’t expecting from a petite Syrah.

Hard to put my finger on it but something just wasn’t all there with this one. Good but not great.

Massively oxidized. Disappointing given our previous 2 bottles were excellent.

Really quite good - richness not normally found at this price point. Sounds nuts but reminded of a Peter Michael chard.

Excellent fuller bodied chard - age helped trim off some of the big body. Long rich finish.

Agree this is much better than the 08. Very well made cab.

Seemed a little out of balance. Maybe let rest for longer (disg May 2017, 2015 fruit).

Agree with the ‘not interesting’ comment. Had two bottles over the last 2 years and both not memorable.

Quite enjoyable rounded cab. Feels like has some merlot or the like to create some softness. Surprised at the good QPR.

Excellent fuller body Pinot. Only nit is a bit of almost oak-ish undertone at finish.

Always an enjoyable mid weight, well balanced cab. Far out punched the Caymus - although clearly very different wines. Caymus couldn’t hold up over a couple days, this was going strong.

Little less focused than the Coeur it was paired with. Touch oxidized and sweet.

More than held its own vs a lineup of Harlan, Schrader, O’ Shaugnessey, Larkmead and Altamura.

Haven’t been on Syrah lately but this was very very good. Deep and rich - most surprisingly held up amazingly well over 5 Days (forgot I had opened it).

Pretty ripe but seems a bit empty on mid and finish although oddly still had long finish.

I'd vote it great, not just good too. Mid bodied and balancing a nice line.
