    October 27, 2019 - Decanted for an hour plus, but it hasn’t changed from the small sip I poured upon opening. Typical violet/purple Syrah hue. Crushed berries, violets, blueberry jam and espresso on the nice. Great balance of acid, fruit and tannin. 15.2% alcohol isn’t evident. Dark fruits are the dominant flavor with hints of spice and something akin to orange peel. Not showy but very solid. For my palate it’s at peak and should stay there for a couple of years.

    March 28, 2019 - PnP and drinking just fine right out of the gate. Didn't show much evolution over the course of a few hours. Seems like it will hold on for a few more years just fine, but probably not much upside in doing so. Showing nice fruit with tertiary notes.

    September 15, 2018 - Loaded with dark berry, pepper and spice flavors. Plump and juicy all the way through, finishing with clove, cinnamon spice, leather and tobacco. Excellent. Has plenty of life left to enjoy for a few more years.

    December 16, 2017 - Unbelievable bottle of wine; had a wonderful nose of leather, tobacco, earthiness & tasted very much like that on one's palate; succulent and full bodied; we had friends over after dinner who, along with us gave it a 93 or 94! Wish we had had more of it in our cellar
