    January 24, 2021 - Rhone on the nose but a little muted on the palate at first. Opened along side the 16 Julian Fayard Sleeping Lady as this bottle came to life! What a difference side by side made. Having some newer fruit on the palate to brought out the notes of the Syrah. Lots of coffee notes which was a contrast from first pour.

    January 23, 2021 - Good wine. Well constructed. Could use some more pizazz to be honest.

    January 4, 2021 - Very slight earthiness, demi glace, dark cherry, tobacco on the nose. Not as strong as I would like. Very nice smokiness and pepper on the palate. Very smooth, well balanced acidity.

    EDIT: After 2 hours the nose changed to a strong scent of BBQ'd pulled pork. Very nice!

    August 23, 2020 - Beautiful wine. Deep, rich and a bit of spice. Thoroughly enjoyed with my double thick bone-in pork chop. In a good zone. Appropriately named also as I gaze at the nearby CA fires.

    (Force Majeure Collaboration Series III Red Wine Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Mountain) Dark in color, it has very pretty, appealing aromas of dark fruit, barrel spices, raspberry, currant, pepper, and mineral notes. The palate is rich, intense, and focused while still retaining its elegance and freshness. 100% Syrah (4 different clones). Aged in 20 French oak (33% new, Burgundy barrels). 14.7% alcohol. 250 cases produced. Mike Macmorran (Mark Ryan, Manu Propria, Force Majeure Estate) winemaker.
