Just too good. Not much of bouquet but flawless to drink. Lot of fruit and alcohol at the same time. Taste lingers in your mouth

Amazing wine. Awesome bouquet.After 4 hours decant there is absolute perfection. Smooth but has heat. Tannins are there but on the sweeter side.

The wine has low acidity. It smells like alcohol/hot, molasses, chocolate and black currant (cassis). The body is full. The wine finishes long. It tastes like chocolate. The wine looks inky colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. The wine has smooth texture.

Very good wine. Needs at least 3 hours of decant. Much better with spicy foods. Tannic but savory

Perfect balance. Earthy, warm, tannic and savory without being fruity. Decanted for 3 hours but continued to get better as night went on.

Decanted for 6 hours. It is a well balanced and ready to drink even at this young age. Savory and warm at the same time. Not a strong aroma on the nose after the decant. Fantastic wine.

An awesome California Bordeaux blend. Savory without being jammy and fruit forward.
Decanted for 5 hours and this is at its prime when we drank with friends over appetizers. Wish I had more. 95 points.

A very good wine. You need to let it breathe at least an hour. What a difference from first sip to the last half glass. Dark in color, average nose, rich and flavorful with berries, dark chocolate and medium tannins. Drank at home with Indian chicken curry. Me and my wife enjoyed it. I am glad I have few more bottles of this wine. A great value for the price.

Good but not up to the level of ratings given to this wine. Fruity and earthy. A typical Syrah. Nothing great.

Decanted for an hour and drank with friends at home. Everyone loved it. Beautiful nose of berries. Fruits, chocolate and medium tannins on the palate. Ling finish. Yummy.

Strawberries on the nose. Warm, floral and tannic. Above average. Nothing exciting.

It is a very good wine, But you have to decant this for at least an hour. Berries and medium tannins. Awesome nose. Very enjoyable.

Drank without decanting at a restaurant. Bold without being tannic. A great wine but not sure it is worth the price.
