    March 11, 2019 - 60% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre, 12% Petite Sirah, 8% Grenache. The Petite Sirah in this wine gives it power and a concentrated mouthfeel. It's full bodied an rich. If you're not looking for a fruit forward wine, this is not for you. Blackberry and cherry notes. Mildly floral on the finish, as you often find in Paso GSMs. Has a fleshy nose. I had this as a PnP and that wasn't an issue.

    December 8, 2018 - Luis' "Bring a very good bottle" event: Decanted 1.5 hours and served fairly cold on purpose. I think the wine was better cold, because this is a monster wine and it is not that balanced. It is hard not to be impressed by the fruit, chocolate and earth on the nose and palate. Hate to say it, but the nose leaps out of the glass. I didn't find this jammy, just heavy. The lack of acid or any balancing flavor is apparent. I find it humorous that this is called Broken Stones and lacks minerality. I'll just have to say "Different strokes" and I can understand if others are impressed by its richness.

    December 6, 2018 - Mixed Wines at Tilia (Tilia, Mpls): This was cold on serving and it did evolve as it warmed, but it was slowly. Some earth, deep and volatile, bold, blackberry, black currant. The palate is full bodied, big and concentrated, pepper, red velvet cake, ripe and lush black fruits huge pepper and spice. I don't get the fuss but it's not really my style, but obviously others love this.

    November 29, 2018 - Really great! Excellent rich flavor and complexity with a delightfully interesting and long finish. Cedar, blackberry, licorice, all very intense. I expected it to not be ready to drink and was surprised by how approachable it was, though for sure has a long rich life ahead.
