    May 5, 2017 - Cork crumbled, so the wine was likely not at it's best.
    Notes - Over the hump, but not too far off yet. Notes of smoke and tar. Cherry note still evident.

    March 18, 2017 - Two hour decant, this has the classic nose and palate of a well made Cali syrah, with black olives and bacon fat clearly present in both. The palate adds some fruit to the mix that makes this full bodied wine well worth the price.

    November 5, 2016 - Somewhat weak and beyond its prime, this bottle mirrors an earlier one wherein the fruit has disappeared and what remains is a tannic and poor expression of Syrah. Disappointing again.

    March 20, 2016 - Dark purple. Full bodied. Blackberry, iodine, limestone, white pepper.

    December 4, 2014 - Complex with many flavors beyond fruit. Enjoyable at this price point. If scoring 90-92.
