    August 31, 2019 - This has improved nicely since last year. Deep flavors of brambleberry pie. Strangely, though it was aged in neutral oak, I got some clear oak notes and oaky tannins, perhaps even some char, on the first night, though that was all gone by the second -- no complaints, as it was just enough to make it interesting. Huge QPR given what I paid.

    August 13, 2019 - This inky purple and opaque Syrah from Joey Tensley starts with aromas of blackberry bramble, blueberry, cured meats, and hints of lavender on the nose. Tastes of blackberry, blueberry, and pepper on the palate continue on into the long finish and last for a little over a minute. Full body, medium alcohol, medium acidity, and medium(+) tannins. From first sniff to last sip this Syrah exceeds all expectations. Great QPR!!

    June 4, 2019 - Day 1: A favorite for under $20. Bigger style wine with roasted meats, pepper, blackberries, strawberries and minerals. Medium to long finish and quite balanced. Enjoy now or over the next few years. I would not age this too long. 92 points
    Day 2: Similar experience to day 1. A bit more spice on day 2. This wine has a long life ahead but is really good now. 92 points

    May 4, 2019 - The wine looks inky colored. It smells like blackberry and blueberry. It tastes like blackberry, blueberry and black currant (cassis). The body is full.
