    August 29, 2019 - Drinking very well, dark red fruit, a bit meaty, some pepper/spice/oak. Integrated medium+ acid/tannins. Very well made enjoyable Paso syrah.

    February 20, 2019 - Drinking well after a short decant. Big, bold, and darkly fruited but with a beautiful sense of restraint, within the context of the appellation. A great bottle of Paso syrah strutting at its peak.

    March 26, 2018 - Popped and poured. Dark, inky purple color. Intensely ripe nose of blueberry pie, black currant, black licorice, vanilla, caramel and charred oak. Heat definitely comes through on the nose as well. Mostly jammy black and blue fruit, chocolate and oak dominate the palate with a slightly hot finish. Not enough acid to carry all the fruit and oak so the wine drinks a bit flabby. Not sure about all of these extremely high scores. I can see lovers of big, ripe, Cali fruit bomb syrahs digging this but it misses the mark for me.

    January 5, 2018 - Even better than the last bottle. In a great place right now, but has years of life left. Dare I say that this wine has become the true standard for me when it comes to Central Coast Syrah?

    November 10, 2017 - Fantastic Syrah! I have just discovered Nicora in the last couple of years and based on what I have tasted and drunk have been buying as much of it as I an afford. This 2010 Buxom has confirmed for me that my recent purchases were well informed. This wine has all that you might want from some of the heavy hitter Rhone producers in Paso - and more.
