    September 7, 2021 - This bottle was, I'm sorry to say, somewhat tired and past peak. Decanted for 30 minutes (based on previous TNs) which helped the wine to open, but it did not improve during dinner. Color was a medium purple to a faded rim. Light aromas of dark red fruit and earth. The palate showed more spice and earth than dark red fruits, with a solid core of acidity, which may be indicating advanced age. Other TNs are much more upbeat, so may be bottle variation as bottle was obtained directly from winery upon release, and storage has been near perfect.

    March 8, 2021 - 90-92 rating. Out of the gate it had a very European nose-reticent with a wet cork, wet wood. Throughout the evening, it transformed several time, including blowing off the musty smell. Balance was always in check. Great mid-palate weight. Medium+ finish.

    November 7, 2020 - A beautiful, luscious Syrah from K Vintner. Clearly a Wahluke Slope wine. It has had enough time to integrate flavors into a seamless whole. Black raspberry with some red fruit tossed in for good measure, smoke, tar, olive tapenade, white pepper and a nice floral touch. Lush and velvety, it finishes long and satisfying. Zero rough edges, totally pleasurable.

    Initially out of bottle wasn’t sure what to make as was a touch cold, reticent on the nose and a punchy, grippy tannic finish. Quite deep purple and plenty of black fruit with 14.5% so enough kick though genuinely quite well hidden. Certainly some a blast of dark chocolate on the finish with the dark fruits.
    Bit of warmth and time in glass / decanter will help with this wine and though remains somewhat of a food wine is approachable on its own.
    In quite a good place now and if the alcohol isn’t an issue as the fruit recedes in years o come it could be quite good. Has an openness and softness combined with a sharper acidic side. Works pretty well. First experience of K vintner and wouldn’t say no again.
