Great value. High elevation syrah that lived up to the hype. Even better on day 2

Had a similar experience as Phansen. Hoping was just a bad bottle, as I have one more left

This was outstanding - it continued to improve over the course of 6-8 hours. Only wish I had more

Holding up well, as it actually had heat to blow off for a couple of hours. Expected a bit more, but have two more bottles to try in a couple years

My favorite wine of 2012. Looking forward to future vintages, but wish I had more than 2 bottles remaining of the 09

Was a birth year wine purchased through K&L Auctions for my birthday. Label was soiled but bottle and cork were in good shape. This wine has held together well and improved/evolved throughout the 6+ hours of being opened. I wasn't blown away (the 89 Pichon Lalande blew me away), but I was very impressed how this held up. I recognize I was emotionally tied to the wine given it was my birthday, but I really enjoyed it

Agree with GalvezGuy. Needs time. Very tight upon opening, but shows great promise after a couple of hours. Went very well with peppercorn steak. I actually wish I had another bottle to try in 2014.

Nose is bright fruit, with mid palate smooth and finish lacking a tad. Enjoyable for a lazy Satuday evening

Still way too early. Needs a lot of air if opening now, but great structure. 90+ with great upside

Beautiful nose. Needs some air, as is young, but this is probably the best California Grenache I have tried to date. Reviews from ST, WA & WS all described this wine well. Dark fruit, rich, creamy and firm acidity & tannins. A steal for under $28. Will look for more

Really enjoyed this one. Needed some time but really came to life at hour 3. Probably a bit overpriced at $50, but will look for more between $30-$40

Better on day 2. Needs some time but enjoyed for a casual night
