April 10, 2021 - Did a side by side with the 2013 and 2014 Snipes Mountain Grenache along with an Old World CdP and this Syrah.
Reminds me that I really enjoy some of the wines from Syncline. Bright red fruits with a smokey whiff. Medium+ body with good balance and plenty of fruit, tannin and acids to keep this rocking for several more years.
October 24, 2020 - My last of four. Best one yet. Very meaty with kirschlike concentration, and plenty of acidity to carry it through. Regret not having secured more.
August 3, 2020 - Appearance: clear, medium, ruby

Palate: dry, acid medium (+), alcohol high, flavor intensity medium, tannins medium, flavors of: cranberry, raspberry, strawberry, cherry, dried fig, preserved fruits, finish medium (+)
December 9, 2018 - Amazing Syrah Library Wine Tasting 2006-2015:
Closed and tight. Lot's of potential, but needs much more time
April 5, 2018 - Lush on the nose and in the mouth, black fruits and violet in front of a meaty, earth middle with big tannins leading to a chewy finish. New World nose and mouth on top of an Old World body... yum
November 11, 2017 - Ripe red fruits, black fruits, a bit jammy. Spice notes, some floral, violets, black pepper. Alc feels a tad warm.
