    September 7, 2020 - Very well balanced, good blend of fruit and secondary flavors. Don't see it getting better, but also no hurry to drink up.

    May 4, 2019 - Nice but lacking depth, power or complexity. Trending towards savory with loads of herbs and earthy elements along with dried red fruits. A nice aromatic nose leads to a somewhat austere palate without much intensity. This is a solid good, nothing more. Still has a reasonable tannic presence but isn't going to get better.

    June 15, 2017 - Nice bottle. Deep color. Full-on fruit. Dense without heaviness. Good balance.

    June 11, 2017 - Pretty good right now. Clearly a California expression of Syrah, but very balanced and delicious.
