    October 8, 2019 - My notes are unchanged from 2016 except it drank best on day two. Still a touch oxidized(?) on day one that was completely gone on day two. Drinking well now but no rush.

    December 3, 2018 - Last bottle and I wish I had waited longer, still young, not much development from 3.5 years ago, coarse. Lots of cool Syrah character but still seems like a surly youngster.

    July 14, 2018 - Last of our 08's. Still lovely with smoky iron, cured meats, blackberry, and pepper. Drinking very well. Congrats to those who have held off you have a stunner on your hands.

    February 23, 2018 - This drinks younger than I might have expected. The fruit is still bright and fresh. I like the core spine of acidity underneath. There is still some astringent grip here. A rare sort of Syrah from California and of a kind we need more of. No rush.
