    July 2, 2021 - Very hard to see past the ethelyl acetate. Very little Syrah character. It did have some ripe/dried fruit and some chocolaty oak aroma. Tasted again 24 hours later; still too much EA.

    December 18, 2020 - Lightly spicy and peppery blue fruits with excellent balance and a great finish. Detailed, nuanced and delicious, in an only 13% abv package. Delicious, and even better than the last bottle.

    October 13, 2020 - Pop and pour. On the nose: blackberry, bramble, a soft hi-toned note, simpler than previous vintages at a comparamble stage imo. On the palate: fantastic acidity, blackberry, green pepper (stems inclusion?), soft bbq notes, brine...excellent salinity, and soft tannin on the finish. Good.

    August 30, 2020 - 93 points for current drinking with a significant upside. Gorgeous nose. Significant tannin on the palate needs to resolve for this wine to reach it's full potential. Tastes like a Northern Rhone. does not display the overt Syrah character that comes through in most new world Syrah. Light on it's feet with good acidity, focus, and finish.

    April 9, 2020 - Very interesting syrah with more development still to come. Really put on weight in the decanter. Started off very high acidity with more pronounced red fruit. Over time the fruit profile darkened and some more savory characteristics emerged. Interesting today but will improve.
