    February 16, 2020 - Deep garnet in color. Nose of crushed blackberries and hints of leather and meat. Taste of blackberries, vanilla, autumnal spices, and tobacco. Complex and taste like a higher end Rhône or Spanish Grenache based wine. Good balance. Fairly youthful and will likely improve over the next 3 to 5 years.

    December 5, 2019 - Drinking youngish, but definitely ready. Delicious, juicy Syrah with Alban smoke and fruit.

    November 13, 2019 - Drinking great. Hitting its stride now. No PnP. NY Strip Steak night. Savory black fruits. Blackberry and bramble. Less complex than Lorraine & Reva, but definitely an Alban wine. No slouch at 15.1% abv. Didn't taste hot, at all. Well done!

    October 4, 2019 - Chewy, punchy Syrah with thick, compressed dark fruit and white pepper on the palate and long finish of dried figs, soil, and unsalted licorice. Interesting and tasty.
