This was actually the Bennett Valley syrah and it was near perfect with fruit, acidity and full palate coverage. It probably won't get any better but has considerable life left. this is a fabulous syrah

Complex but elegant with a silky texture and a full finish. Popped and poured and it really started to fully open after 2 hours. This will probably drink well for many years to come

Well balanced but soft and with enough acidity that it should easily last until 2020.

This is a very big syrah that can that can pair with the heartiest of foods.It was fine with chile verde which normally I would pair with beer. It has lots of age left in the tank.
Red
The nose was primarily boysenberry with a touch of vanilla. The palate was fruit forward. This is young and will grow more complex. Went well with short ribs

Great zin. Intense nose, full coverage of the palate, nice balance and long finish. Too bad these vines are gone. It just doesn't get better than this.

Great nose and a silky mouth feel to match. Given the age I was pleasantly surprised. This still has quite a bit of life left.

Hard to criticize this wine. Good aromatics, flavors, and mouth feel with a long finish

This has all the attributes of a great cab. There is no rush to drink it now but, if you do, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

this wine took about 3 hours to open but it was worth it. Lots of dark cherry in the mid palate. Still has a lot of life left.

Deep dark ruby color. Some fruit with chocolate on the nose. Just the right amount of tannins and acidity. Flavors were balanced between fruit and earthiness and full on the palate. I would rate this wine outstanding and could age a few more years.

clear ruby color. floral aromas that became more intense over a few hours. very balanced flavors with a long finish and very little heat. drink this now as it is hard to see how it can get any better. one of the best pinots i've experienced in a long time.

This is the 6th bottle of this wine that I have consumed since 2007. Every bottle has been excellent with no noticeable
deterioration in aroma or taste during that time. This is a high quality pinot.

This is drinking fabulous. The Anderson Valley is one of the best pinot noir regions and this bottle is very representative. Good nose, good taste and good finish.

A nose of spice and black currant. A full bodied taste with a long tannic and fruity finish that complemented the food. This merlot is great now but probably will peak a few years down the road.
