    September 19, 2020 - Decanted. Moderate Sediment.
    Opaque and deep, dark red with ruby hues. Glass staining after the swirl
    Scents reveal the maturing side of California Syrah. Aromas of tar and race tires lead into scents of dry aged red meats, leather, tobacco, petrichor, earth, black olive, dried violets, caraway seed and juniper meld with notes of camp smoke black currant, plum and dark cherry.
    This wine retains it's muscular tannin structure on the palate. Berry like acidity brings an air of freshness. Dense and firm upon entry. Flavors show a mixture of plum, currant, leather, tobacco, olive, dry aged meats, camp smoke, turned earth and hints of dried violets, juniper and tar. The dry, meaty finish linger.

    May 27, 2020 - Excellent! Not sure where we bought it -- we've had it for a while. Intense dark fruit, tons of sediment.

    April 2, 2020 - Beautiful Syrah. All the telltale signs. Meaty with a lovely pipe tobacco, cherry nose. Some acidity still there in the palate. Nice finish. These wines just get better and better with age!

    May 17, 2018 - Some nice notes, but too hot and heavy for my taste.
