    October 15, 2017 - This bottle was tighter than last one. It has a few years, but is great now with a bit of air. Reidel Syrah glasses

    July 5, 2017 - Fantastic. The descriptors are the same as my note in 2015, but I think it's even more composed and integrated than it was two years ago. For the 2010 vintage, I think I prefer the Banshee over the Akasha, even though Akasha comes from a more heralded vineyard. If I were to taste this blind, I would guess Saxum and I would place this among the top third of all the Saxum's I've ever had. And for someone who's been on the Saxum list since the 2003 vintage, that's saying something. Despite the 15.5% alcohol, it doesn't taste hot, but I do feel a little woozy after a couple glasses.
