So good, smooth, smoky, silky, and perfect with grilled rib steaks. Loving Gramercy’s winemaking styles - not meant for impatient drinkers. This one has it all - drink now.
An amazing wine. Pear, lemon curd, and apricots - such an expressive wine. Loved this.
A bit flat, and unimpressive for a CNdP. Unremarkable, and likely needs another 3-5 years to do something but I’m not sure if this will turn out better.
A wonderful expression of Syrah, fruity but dark and lengthy at the same time.

An absolutely stunning wine. Was a little concerned when the cork broke but this an amazing wine experience. Almost bricklike in colour, hints of medicinal, a bit musty like a barnyard but in a good way. Flavours of cedar, old tobacco, wet hay, leaves, stewed plums, and a lasting intensity that was unbelievable. Definitely in my top 5 of all time.
This was simply awful. Contrived, manipulated sweetness, and artificial flavours. Perhaps my bottle was bad, but I’ll avoid this one in the future. Not a happy place in my flavour profile.
