    March 7, 2020 - Pop and pour, consumed over 4 hours. Nose: Medium-plus intensity, blueberry, blackberry, pencil lead, and Asian spice and showing a bit of smokiness with a good swirl. Palate: Full bodied, perfectly ripe red-cranberry/blue-blueberry and plum/black fruit-blackberry attack, spicy mid-palate lift, resolves into mostly blue fruit and spice in the back-end with black olive and saddle leather notes. It's a big wine that holds its weight pretty well, but its still noticeably heavy.

    October 4, 2019 - Drank over two days. At first silky and feminine but toward the end of day 2 it really fleshed out with palate-filling black fruit and licorice.

    March 12, 2019 - Plenty of life left in this and much better than the last time I opened one. Purple and inky but opened up with about 30-45 minutes of air... Definitely more fruit forward to me but not overly so...really nice.

    February 9, 2019 - Agree with Nutty08. I rate this higher than most, as I have tasted many 92 rated wines that don't even come close to this wonderful expression of Syrah. Kudos to Maggie.

    December 25, 2018 - Dark red. Full bodied with ripe plum and blackberry fruit. A hint of savory game and bacon notes. Definitely balanced much more towards the fruity aspect of Syrah than the savory. More of a cocktail style of wine.
