    December 3, 2020 - Nice nose of dark berries, savory notes, a hint of sweetness, and dark fruit. Good balance with more dark fruit, thyme, and blackberries. Medium+ tannins and good acidity. Nice finish. Didn’t like it quite as much as last time I had it, but still a delicious wine!

    December 2, 2020 - Nice cool climate California Syrah. Was good on opening and even better the second night.

    September 29, 2020 - Pretty similar to previous notes. I really don't like this style of syrah - too much spice, a bit thin and has a barnyard feel.

    November 2, 2019 - Opened and left in the bottle for an hr or so; then drank over the next 90 mins. Visually, a fairly deep purple. Moderate extraction. Elegant. Beautiful nose, typical of a cool climate syrah but for a paucity of white pepper - blue and black ripe fruits, olives, hints of violets. More olives/tapenade than last bottle. Tannins are relatively fine and well integrated. Last bottle of this vintage. Very good QPR.
