    June 26, 2018 - First night, this had a lovely blend of black fruit, melted licorice and coffee. The second night things had faded, but my fault for not reducing the air in the bottle.

    June 24, 2018 - Still young. Loads of fresh Syrah fruit with modest tannins. We

    January 20, 2018 - Drank over 2 nights. It was good the first night but even better the 2nd night. Rich red fruit flavor with raspberry showing the most. There is a little bit of spice and a nice finish. Solid effort. I’d definitely buy again.

    October 17, 2017 - Tuesday Night Double Blind $40+ (Bin 75 Alpharetta, GA): Dark core, cloudy, dull purple rim; bacon fat, violets, smoky, raspberry, darker in back, plum; plumper mouthfeel, big, a bit heavy, grainy, alcohol, heavy, a juicy undercurrent, acid and extract don't match making this awkward at this stage.

    May 26, 2017 - Impressive. Smoky meat, ripe fruit, and light spices on the nose. Plump and glycerin-rich on the palate. Big tannins. Drinks well now but will be better with 3 more years of age.
