    January 8, 2023 - Dark garnet, completely opaque, with just the slightest hint of amber. Powerful nose immediately on opening...plums, black cherries, mocha. really not much of the roasted meat aromas of their Milton-Freewater vineyards. Very viscous inside the glass. The flavors are deep, rich, and concentrated, but very round and balanced, with just a touch of heat. Nice long aftertaste, also slightly hot. This is one of their best wines, fully mature.

    July 22, 2022 - Smoky nose with flavors of blackberry, wood smoke, mushroom. Pop of blueberry on the finish with some weak tea notes. Light-medium weight. Compact. One hour in, the smoke dissipates to a slight acrid note underpinning juicy fruit and providing balance.

    June 8, 2022 - Medium bodied, savory. Black and red fruited. Good but actually I liked the 14 better.

    July 31, 2021 - 2013 was a lighter year for Reynvaan syrahs but you'd never know it from this wine! Dark garnet, completely opaque, with just the slightest hint of amber. Powerful nose immediately on opening...plums, black cherries, mocha. really not much of the roasted meat aromas of their Milton-Freewater vineyards. Very viscous inside the glass. The flavors are deep, rich, and concentrated, but very round and balanced, with just a touch of heat. Nice long aftertaste, also slightly hot. This is one of their best wines, fully mature.

    April 3, 2021 - Five Syrah, blind (four WA, one OR), plus two Reynvaan non-blind: Not decanted. I like this a little less than the 2012 Reynvaan Stonessence tasted alongside, but it's still outstanding. Red and dark fruit on the nose. On the palate, it's a little funky, but has beautiful fruit. A nice little note that reminds me of the liquid you get from rehydrating dried porcini mushrooms. Long finish. Good now and in no sign of decline.
