May 20, 2019 - Same notes applied. Just popped and poured.
April 26, 2019 - This is a leather, olive, and meat aroma. On opening was a lot of acidity. mellowed out into a dark fruit, olive, and somewhat salty(?) deliciousness.
March 16, 2019 - Strong balance of mineral, acid and fruit. Opened bottle 2 hours ahead of drinking. Mineral and acid nose, fruit kicks in on the tongue. Drinkable now, room temperature.
February 14, 2019 - This was pretty closed down, tight and unfriendly on first night, but very good on night two. I will hold my remaining bottles. I really like Mike's syrahs. Cheers
October 15, 2018 - Medium bodied, nice red fruit on the nose. Tart cherry on the palate, slightly elevated acids. Long finish. Very lively at this stage, drinks well. Will benefit from more cellaring.
May 27, 2018 - Aired for three hours in the bottle. Drank at room temperature. This was our first tasting of the 2014 Hulda Block Syrah. We like the wine, enjoyed it on an unusually cold, damp May evening. Earthy nose, immediately tart on the tongue and full mouth. Fruit taste, with a mineral finish. Paired well with a chili con carne. Will also likely age well.
February 11, 2018 - We've had some good Quivet syrah but this wasn't one of them. Neither Joan and I really enjoyed it.
May 9, 2017 - Surprised that I forgot about these for 12 months. That won't happen again! Pop and pour this time around. Consistent profile with prior notes - I really love this wine. Went great with pulled pork. Disappeared all too quickly.
April 12, 2017 - Agree with most of the tasting notes. Wouldn't have guessed Syrah blind. Light with sweet and tart fruit. Interested to see what happens after it sits for a little while but otherwise not a huge fan for my palate.
March 15, 2017 - Light ruby red in color. Signs of translucency on the edges. On the nose, jammy mix of of cranberry, blueberry and with a hint field greens. On the palate this is a light and crisp red wine, cranberries are still present with a tartness on the midpalate. Almost no oak or tannin. Short finish. Not really my cup of tea. Not sure I would buy again but a really well made wine.
