    February 14, 2020 - Delicious mature Syrah. fruit, spice, nice acidity. Good on day two as well. Drink or hold.

    December 27, 2019 - Nicely aged though minimal evolution. Smooth, integrated, with the tannins quite tame but still present. Smoky, nice pepper note. Purple fruit-acidity has softened. Strong finish. Really nice at this point. No reason to hold back.

    October 12, 2019 - A really beautiful bottle of syrah. An earlier vintage of this is what showed me how great California syrahs can be. This bottle is better than the last one I reviewed, which I commented was past its prime. This one is still going strong and will likely keep well for at least a few more years, even if it might have been better a couple of years ago. Perfectly balanced and a real pleasure to drink!

    October 11, 2019 - Brighter, minerality driven core. Black/purple fruits but this isn't a fruit bomb. Still a fresh profile, this had aged nicely.
