still early , but close to my expectation of a perfect wine. Balance of fruit and acid has improved. The Nose is exceptional.

excellent example of everything a Great Syrah should be. Balance and structure are superb. Very enjoyable now, with an hours decant, but will continue to improve with bottle age.

postulating solely on what is to come, this has a great balance of acidity, fruit, and tannin for what could be a fantastic Mt Veeder. Might be a bit early to project, but I expect this to be outstanding in 5-7 years.
