    September 7, 2015 - Nose has scents of blackberry jam toast, herbs and bacon grease. Blackberry dominates the palate with a touch of orange peel, chocolate and nice minerality. Good acidity and structure. Long snappy finish. Interesting wine.

    August 16, 2012 - Showing age. Not much pepper, lots of finesse. Odd note on the nose, blueberry and currant reduction, oak, iron/blood, and herbs - thyme, tarragon, etc. Nice character, medium-bodied, but lacking in comparison with comparable wines. Had with a 2010 Owen Roe Yakima Valley Syrah - not a fair comparison, but both were satisfying.

    July 4, 2012 - A shame they won't make this wine anymore. Drinking very nice right now. Great balance and finish.
