    April 13, 2015 - Excellent, easy to drink, opens up immediately.

    September 29, 2014 - Somewhat neutral on this wine: Pretty purple/garnet color here. Not particularly floral (I suppose I could have opened longer). White pepper, black pepper, lavender, purple flowers, stewed raspberry, baked red apple. Dried cranberry, high acid. It opens on the palate to be more smooth and manageable: soft, smooth baked cherry, blueberry pie, hints of apricot and cinnamon heat. very very spicy wine. This wine is a little punchier than expected...would have pegged it for some Granacha in there but it's all Syrah. Didn't love this wine but would give another bottle a chance
