    January 13, 2022 - No tasting note, no rating - my palate was dead, due to a cold.

    March 23, 2021 - Textbook cool weather Syrah. Slow ox’d in bottle for 2 hrs. Dark fruits, pepper, meat, with floral notes (violets). Should improve over the next 3-5 yrs, and drink well for 7-8 more yrs. Terrific QPR.

    November 7, 2020 - drinking well, if still a bit young. Could use more time for what I presume are stems to integrate. Nice balance, plenty of cut with neither tannins nor acidity being obtrusive.

    October 25, 2020 - Deep garnet color. Lots of subtleties and expression on the nose - plum & mulberry, bone broth, peppercorn, dried lavender & rosemary, spice rub, wet forest. Layered on the palate with vivid black fruit and a melange of secondary sanguine and savory spices, florals, mesquite char and earth. Medium-bodied, with terrific presence and round density in the middle, excellently framed acidity, leading to chewy round tannins toward the finish, which is dry, concentrated, and with nice length. Very young but shows well. Excellent.
