Community Tasting Notes 5

    October 5, 2019 - Ja, ja, ja! This is a style of syrah that I really like and they do it so well; dark fruited and with some hints of vanilla from the oak - but, importantly, it is all in the background; most of all it's meaty, fresh and medium bodied with a minerality and elegance that does not go anywhere near briny or tapenade or kalamata. Hint of smoke and chocolate mole with plums. This is great now but my guess is that it will come out on the other side in five years with even more magic. Highly recommended.

    July 17, 2019 - Bountiful smells of blackberry preserves, redwood mulch, and roasted game are followed by a palate of dank boysenberries, blackberries and plums along with a balancing peppery/black olive umami lift and closing balsamic tang. Brooding, demanding, powerful, and delicious: this performed like an Alban Reva with just a bit more up front polish and a bit less extraction at the same age. Performed well over 2 days but will be better still in 2021.

    August 16, 2017 - Fantastic. Could hang with the best of the Frenchies.

    July 1, 2017 - Deep red color. Black fruit on the nose. Earthiness quality to the wine. Big red but not overpowering. Lingering herbs, but not overwhelming. Really good balance. This wine should only improve over the next couple of years. Decanted for a little over an hour. Served with roasted whole chicken done on the grill and grilled figs. Outstanding pairing.
