    February 25, 2020 - Sadly this is just off. Tastes like dissolved lipstick...

    January 22, 2020 - Big, brooding and meaty. Rich and tannic, yet composed. Black cherry and blueberry flavors; mocha, iron, coffee, mineral and earth tones. Remarkably complex with a finish that lasts an eternity.
    Decanted 2 hours. This wine has a lot of life left.

    November 29, 2019 - More muted than I expected despite 1.5-2hr decant. Would wait a few years

    November 26, 2019 - Decanted first about 30 mins. So well balanced and showing great lively fruit.

    November 16, 2019 - USA Syrah tasting in Vino and Friends. (By JK in Maastricht): Red berries and still lactic impressions in the bouquet. On the palate a beautiful balance between acidity and sweetness, red and dark berries, a lot of herbs and spices, slightly sticky tannin. Still very youthful, but good potential.
