In an interesting place. Has evolved for the better over the past 5 years. Still has lots of room for development but not sure where it's going.

Jammy on the nose. More balanced on the palate. I don't think this will improve with age.

Very tight right now. Hold for at least another year (probably more.)

In a beautiful spot right now. Great upon open and deepend in complexity sipping over a 2 hour dinner.

Intense. Lemon, melon, with rich body and long finish.

Yes, this is still a ripe, extracted, wine. But it is beautifully integrated and the tannins are very silky. Aging very well (hard to tell it's almost a decade old.) This bottle had been cellard properly which probably helped.

Personally cellared since 2005, this is still fresh and vital with little signs of reaching maturity. Fruit forward but well balanced. Pleasant upon first pour, it opened up beautifully in the glass over an hour.

Same as my last note but just a bit less engaging - probably bottle variation.

Not showing any negative traits of age. Nicely integrated blue fruit. Fairly one dimensional with a medium finish. Probably has several more years of aging potential but not sure if it will get any better.

This is really singing now! Wow, took sooo long to soften up but it finally did. Still benefits from a short decant but it's also pop & pourable.

Very tasty Zin/Rhone blend (the first Saxum made from this historic vineyard.) No signs of age - concentrated but still youthful. Popped and poured but it improved with glass time.

I think a bit past it's peak. This is the older, riper, style from LC and still enjoyable.

It's a lovely wine but did not dazzle my palate as much as other notes here seem to infer. Will cellar my other bottle for a couple years.

n/a but think it's pretty wound up now and perhaps in a dumb phase.

Still fresh and rather tannic. Suggest cellaring for a couple more years

Either not aging well or in a dumb phase. Tastes like acid with a bit of herb and earth. 4 hour decant didn’t help. Decided to pour down drain. Disappointing.

My first SQN and very enjoyable. My assessment is that it's enjoyable now but has potential to develop into a better wine.

This bottle is currently singing! Expressive and intense cassise on the nose. Beautifully integrated. The Cab Franc balances the juiciness of the Cab Sauv. Rich, silky, mouthfeel. Long pleasurable finish.

Drinking beautifully now but has many years of development potential. Bright garnet. Good integration and pleasant acidity - it's intended to be a food wine. Silky texture and enjoyable finish.

Pop & Pour. Maturing nicely - don't think it will get much better as a touch of oxidation was noticed after about 40 mins. Delicious balance of fruit and acid.

Still tightly wound. Popped and poured one glass in late evening. Big and chewy as expected but enjoyable. As it evolved in the glass it took on a more tannic structure. Corked remaining half of bottle and then sipped the next afternoon. It had unwound and was drinking pleasurably. I say cellar for at least another year.

No decant and I don't think it is required at this point as I enjoyed the opening in a large glass. Good integration and concentration (as expected.) I think it's in a very good drinking phase right now but certainly can age more - just uncertain if it will be better for it.

After reading recent notes here was not expecting much. Was a pleasant surprise. Very Italian and good balance and integration at this point. Don't think it will get better so drink up (preferably with rich savory food - Osso Buco comes to mind.)

Drank next to the regular 2004 estate Syrah. This wine is still youthful! Much more mineral driven. After about 45 mins in decanter started to open up more and become more complex. Hold!

Drank next to 2004 Syrah Ma Vigne au Soleil (special single block club only bottling.) This was more fruit forward and still in great shape - years more life here but I think in a good drinking window. Was more fruit forward than Ma Vigne au Soleil.

This wine is not past it's prime. Beautiful integration, balance, and complexity. Really lovely.

It's been about 4 years since my last bottle and it's still an acid monster but mellowing a bit with age. Going to give my last bottle another 4 years...

Been at least 6 years since tasting this wine. I find it a bit more disjointed than previously. It presents itself with sweet fruit and moves to a more structured finish. It did improve with time in the glass so recommend a decant (although I did not.)

Decanted only 1 hour but, like other notes here, suspect it needs 3 - 6 hours of breathing (wanted to save some for hours later but drank it all instead!) Wound up right now but still very enjoyable.

Tool about 30 mins to open up and then very enjoyable.

Agree with other recent notes. Recommend a long decant or holding for a few more years.

Black cassis in spades. Fairly high extraction. Nicely integrated. Nice with a steak.

Showing signs of maturity (fruit is subdued, pleasant tertiary flavors rising.) Nicely integrated and good balance. A moderate amount of sediment is present. I don't think it will get better with further aging but would not bet against it.

Needs a multiple hours in a decanter. Too early to drink.

Aging quite well for the vintage. I don't think will improve further with age. There is light sediment in the bottle.
