Exquisite tonight and entering a refined stage in development. Seemingly better than than the last bottle, the tannins now seem fully matures and velvety, yet still massive. Remarkable boutique winemaking.

Needs decanting. Uncompromising old school Syrah, forest floor funk, wet animal, mineral backbone, bold acidity. Geeky stuff.

Giving pleasure and broad but not particularly complex. Certainly a step up from LBV or crusted.

Some real interest here. Hinting at orange in colour. Funky and complex, copper minerality, long. I’m very much looking forward to the next bottle and will definitely give it more concentrated analysis. Love finding the fun in these avant garde wines. Wonderful. 91+

Awkward and hairy when first opened. Definitely needs a few years. After decanting and time in the glass it’s delightful.

Fully mature but with time in hand. Complex and with smokey refinement. There is a an edgy component through the mid palate a textural hairy tingle. The oak now well integrated and the finish is very long. Really fun bottle.

Sleek and crowd pleasing. Enjoyable but effortful. I'm irritated by the heavy bottle.

Delightful and very pure and with proper focus, needs a couple of years to gain complexity. Effortless drinking, ripe lemon and maybe hints of white flowers, mineral. Lovely.

This really did slip down fantastically well. So graceful and sleek, very cleverly handled and judged winemaking. The nose already complex, ripe alpine strawberry and a tiny hint of balsamic volatility. Real energy and focus, yet so beautifully rounded too. Very enjoyable!

Mature and showing a complex bouquet, dark and autumnal, pure and mineral across the palate, refined, the toasted oak combining with the bold tannins and good length. Because of the toasty oak and tannins I'll pair the next bottle with grilled red meat. 91+

Stunningly pure Syrah. Funky old world style, but very classy too. Deep in interest, bold acidity, edgy VA, long. Brilliant geeks wine.

Chunky and one dimensional, drinkable but not fine. Overpowering linseed on the nose and palate. Interesting colour though.
