    January 7, 2019 - I remember not being overly impressed by this wine on release or even after a couple of years in the cellar. But tonight it was really singing. Dark red in color with very slight fading at the edges. The nose is dark fruits and a lovely scent of warm spice. The fruit is rich and smooth, blackberries, blueberries and cracked black pepper. Firm tannins, good acidity and balance. Finishes moderately long and peppery. Drinking really well right now and, I'd guess, for 2 or 3 years out.

    August 19, 2017 - This came out late night, so this is probably more broad strokes. Clearly new world and more fruit driven, but nicely counterbalanced by smoke, pepper and gamy notes. The tannins a totally integrated, but there is still a fair degree of acidity to keep it lively. Probably at peak, but it has the stuffing to last for several more years.

    December 8, 2011 - We're still really enjoying the 2007 Purisima - all syrah baby! This vino has backbone, and although it's drinking nicely now I'm determined to hold at least one to see how it evolves. Stems up!

    November 19, 2011 - This is just an outstanding example of California Syrah; concentrated, rich and powerful in taste yet still elegant, complex and nicely textured. Somewhat floral on the nose with lots of berry fruit and spice with a wonderful long finish. Seven bottles left and although I'd love to watch them mature I am going to have a hard time not drinking these sooner rather than later.

    October 17, 2011 - Just popped and poured after chilling - deep, dark syrah in the glass, incredibly smooth right out of the bottle with a full mouthfeel and some tannins. Very, very nice! Stems up!
