    June 12, 2019 - This wine is amazing. Old world Syrah feel. Loads of complexity and depth. Structure to age for years to come. Iresistable right now.

    January 27, 2019 - This wine is huge. Dark red to the rim, it balances powerful dark fruits with pepper, leather, and spices. The tannins are still very present, although the wine is not hot. Alcohol is restrained in the wine. While it can be consumed now, I suggest giving it another 5 years for the tannins to subside. The wine will then deserve a higher score.

    December 31, 2018 - no score as we opened this at the end of the NYE celebration and my taste buds were shot.

    December 30, 2018 - Big and ripe, but incredibly balanced. Still could use a year or two in bottle for me. Fascinating to see where it heads. It’s a bold beast right now, wearing an ill-fitting tuxedo.

    December 21, 2018 - Friday Tasting Group: My 1st "Killer Bar" (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): N: RIPE with a distinct smokiness, maybe mocha?

    P: LM body; NICE frt met by an puckerish astringency which transitions into a very LONG finish with a bitter/swtness to the dusty tannins. NEEDS a bunch of time (4 yrs, guessing?), then making its 20th. My EXC+, Exceptional- eventually? 97 pts WA, 95 Jeremy Oliver, 94 ea Huon Hooke, WS, & WE, 92 Wine & Spirits, and 91 The Wine Front!

    Note: I found this MORE approachable on 12/23/2017.
