    October 6, 2017 - I originally had 6 bottles of this wine. I had the first bottle exactly 2 years ago and was extremely disappointed. The experience was not even in the same universe as the Pro Reviewer ratings and the price point. This bottle was much better.....a little below the Pro Ratings, but very good. I had the bottle at a restaurant with about a 45 minute decant. It might rate better if I had it at home where I could decant it for a longer window before dinner. I will pursue that strategy next time.

    September 12, 2017 - Big wine. Decanted for 3+ hours. This was smooth after the decant but I feel like the oak was still not quite integrated on the first night. We had about 1/3 of the bottle left on the first night, so I put it back in the bottle and pumped the oxygen out. On the second night, this was much better - silky smooth, though I did not get a lot of syrah characteristics out of it. Needs more time IMO.

    July 16, 2017 - Much improved from last tasting 7 months ago - really opening up nicely - decanted and drank as an after dinner treat with friends
