    December 27, 2021 - Initially drinks like a young wine with mostly fruit related notes, a full body and wonderfully rounded, almost to the point where I believe there is a bit of RS in this one. With airing it becomes more savoury and developed, with syrah notes of olives, pine roast, cloves and pepper. Really a full bodied, unctuous, New World Syrah of very high quality

Big time baconfat and garrigue on the nose. On the palate, it was uncommonly savory, with baconfat and grilled meat, along with black and blue berries and a hint of tapenade. Not particularly rich, with a medium body at most. Really nice finish. Probably slightly past its peak, but just delightful.

Body is medium full, with partially resolved tannins and well balanced acidity wrapping dark and red fruit. Good finish. Enjoyable but not confident it will progress to the next level as the fruit fades and the savory secondary notes evolve.

    March 27, 2020 - Opaque purple with brick colored highlights with smoked meat, bacon fat, truffle, black fruit, olive, white pepper. On the palate it's delicious and layered with zesty acidity, and with blackberry, black currant, graphite, a hint of dried fig with some very appealing savory bit. Long finish. 14.9% abv|SRP - $34
