    April 7, 2019 - At open it carries a synthetic red fruit note - each bottle has been like this, other reviewers have noted this too - but fortunately it dissipates with air. We gave it better than two hours in the decanter, drank over the following two. With air the nose leads with caramelized, brambly dark berries. There's a really subtle musty, green note in there too, it reminds me a bit of Oregon coast during the winter.

    The wine drinks on the red side of the spectrum - juicy red currants, strawberry, subtle acid. Notes of sweet tobacco, black and white pepper, cardamom, and cigar - it's balance, warm and spicy. Drinks great. We put it back in the bottle under glass cork, and into the fridge - the following night it was just as lovely.

    Third of four, best one yet. Give it air.

    December 7, 2018 - Theme was Grenache from anywhere, blind. Lighter in color than most. Complex spicy nose. Big palate, lots of fruit, but a tone going on. Long finish. A number of Chateauneuf’s on the table, I thought this showed quite well. Decanted a couple of hours, based on other notes. Probably helped, as will some more time in the bottle. I might seek out more.

    August 30, 2018 - Savory. All the K vintners that has Syrah have the big K on the front. Also inspired by the beatles white album and then something else from and invisible musician. Very savory on the nose. And then some melted chocolate. This is the first vintage from powerline. And that is kinda a wacky wine.

    August 23, 2018 - Translucent ruby red fading to amber rim. Aromas of red cherry, raspberry, tea leaf, and cinnamon with hints of smoked meat. Medium bodied with ripe, lush red fruit on the palate leading to a long bitter finish. Alcohol is prominent but not overpowering and tannins are fine grained. Made from 100% Grenache. Although lacking in subtlety or complexity, it is fairly typical of a Charles Smith wine. 15% ABV.
