July 28, 2020 - PnP. This continues to evolve for the better. Black fruit wrapped around olive and meat.
July 4, 2020 - Drinking very well now. Integrated, dark fruit without being jammy. Tannins have mellowed nicely, but still plenty of structure to age further. Should've bought more. This was a fantastic QPR.
April 30, 2020 - What a QPR!! Well balanced, tannins have calmed down from previous report od 2 yrs ago. Even better on day 2.
April 22, 2020 - PnP. This seems fully integrated. Blue and black fruit with a bit of jammy bramble on the finish.
April 18, 2020 - Quick 30 minute decant. Still drinking well and great QPR ($19).
March 13, 2020 - Drinking well now, matches previous notes.
February 22, 2020 - Consumed over two nights. A little brambly funk, a bit bigger than expected, but still very pleasing.
January 18, 2020 - Pop and pour. Tasted n its own.
Dark purple color.
Nose offers dark fruits and a violet note. Fresh and lively on the intro, then followed by dark fruits, some leather and fresh tobacco notes. Nice depth of flavor.
A big wine, yet approachable now.
January 16, 2020 - I am confused? It says it is a “cool-climat” Syrah. MTP, how could a cool climate Syrah have 14.5% alcohol? Yet it tastes cool climate..... Brilliant for the alcohol level. Can we try for 13% next year how about 12.5%? You can do it!
January 13, 2020 - Big and hedonistic, smacks you over the head with blueberry and black plum followed by pastrami strait from the smoker, canned black olive with hints of violet and cocoa. Full bodied with just enough acid and silky tannin to hold it together.
A little monolithic but also very satisfying on a chilly winter night. Open for business.
