    August 10, 2019 - Smokin Meat and Serious Syrah 2.0 (Westport, CT): Fitting with the Aussie theme and transitioning into some of the US new world. I always like Jayson's wines. They are hedonistic (as are the SQN), but there's something also very approachable and engaging about them. And while they are intense he seems to achieve some balance. Not over killing the fruit. Some decent acid. This was similar to that. You can't really tell the age (I wonder if one ever will - we have some of the early 2000's Napa versions sleeping), but it is as I said quite approachable and quite drinkable.

    April 24, 2019 - Great fun to drink, hitting first maturity now, but long long life ahead. Intense tomato concentrate notes, that with air intensified a bit and kind of dominated the wine making it slightly one dimensonal. But good

    February 5, 2019 - Slight brick around the edge. Full bodied black fruit. Lots of time left to this one.

    February 6, 2018 - Dark garnet-purple, but slight hint of brown edges. Extremely viscous. Sweet black fruits and sweet oak, pronounced, but some definite prune notes indicating it's a bit beyond its peak. Very concentrated and full-bodied, but very balanced, with loads of fruit, high acidity, tannin well in the background. Overall very rich and full. Very long sweet finish. An outstanding wine, but the nose suggests its a bit beyond, and should be drunk.

    January 15, 2018 - Third and final bottle of this fantastic wine. Sadly, I think it has begun to decline. Nose was still as expected but the palate and finish was far from being the full bodied velvet bomb I’ve become accustomed to. Drink now unless you prefer very soft edges.
