    December 25, 2019 - Dk cherry and blackberry with menthol, rare beef, black olives, herbs de provence, smoke, and leather. There also a hint of something floral. Elegant, dark, and complex. Very nice wine.

    August 10, 2017 - PNP. I'm told this was from the winery owner's private cellar. The name of the wine has changed now due to a legal challenge (the bottle is almost a collector's item). Deep, dark, inky color. Jerky, cola, blackberry, pepper and beets on the nose. Rich, smooth, dry palate (nice middle of the tongue acidity) with an herbaceous (think fresh cut grass) quality. Long, mouth filling finish with firm, rounded tannins. Absolutely unique, wonderful Syrah.

    April 9, 2017 - P&P. Big red and black fruit, tobacco, bacon fat and that amazing Rocks funk! Drinking well, probably at peak. Drink now - 2020.

    August 27, 2016 - Great stuff...P&P and poured through an elk head aerator. Don't ask. Nice and funk, just how I like it. Black fruit, pepper, smoked meat. Delicious and drinking very well. Drink now - 2020+.

    July 10, 2016 - Popped and poured a small glass. Similar experience to the bottle I opened on 2013, just not good, and I like funkiness. The second and third days it was better but frankly it is just too big. I think I will pass in the future.
