    August 5, 2019 - A little funky, but good fruit. A little boring for the price.

    July 26, 2019 - P&P. Very rich and full bodied Syrah, with Rocks Funk (although not nearly as funky as the Horsepower), blackberries, pepper and iodine. Drink now - 2030.

    July 20, 2019 - Delicious expression of ‘the rocks’. At least I think that’s where it’s from. Earth, leaves, olives, brine with a blackberry, currant nose. Loved it.

    July 9, 2019 - Stony, leafy, smoky, and salty sweaty notes over intense blackberry and currant on the nose, quite heady. Follows up nicely in the mouth. Bright black fruit and olive notes that persist through the finish. Drinking great now, seems to have balance that will help it age elegantly. 93+

    May 25, 2019 - My tasting note turned out really similar to Jeb Dunnuck's. Very ripe blackcurrant that only partially pokes it head out behind a stony, smoky mineral character- peat moss, sea air, brine, ash etc. Love that it still has a fruit presence even with all the earthiness that threatens to overwhelm, and time will definitely help that fruit to blossom, but this was so delicious, unique and with no heat whatsoever. Unfortunately it disappeared quickly, none was saved for a day 2 analysis. Felt it was worth the price.
    Rated this the same as his 2015 M.C.K. syrah- I felt like this was a little more complex, but that the M.C.K. was more ready and fully expressive at this point, while this had some closed austerity. Would love to try this in a few years.
