    December 29, 2018 - 76% Syrah and 24% Mourvedre. International Wine Report’s #1 Wine of the Year for 2013 and a well deserved recognition. Outstanding bottle of wine. In a good spot right now. Recommend to drink now, though if you want to hold should still have more life in it.

    June 25, 2018 - Whoa, this is fantastic! 76% Syrah, 24% Mourvedre. Wild berry, black currant, and blackberry fruit. Great structure on this wine with a wonderful balance of flavors that include black licorice, smoked meat, earth, tobacco, and a smoky savory component on the end. Chewy tannins and a tremendously long finish. Great wine, the extra years of age have done this justice.

    May 5, 2018 - Full bodied yet graceful, with blackberry and black currant, licorice and hints of grilled meat. Finishes with solid minerality.
