    August 18, 2019 - Thank you Krengel's for the invite
    So many SQN so little time
    Others were mostly very new world and very high alcohol
    I found this beauty more demure ,delicious with some old world characters
    OK it was my bottle and I focused on it a little more than all the others
    To try all the wines available made me feel lucky to be alive

    August 17, 2019 - SQN & BBQ (The Krengels - Bannockburn IL): Small glass, brief note from memory. Even more painfully young than the 2013 Grenache, and also showing so much promise already. Long, bold, powerful, all with a sense of emerging balance, I have high hopes for a 95+ point wine 2021 forward.

    July 24, 2019 - Wow, what a Syrah! Second by a point to 2012 Alban Lorraine, but just a delight to drink. Big flavor profile and super smooth, fills the mouth. Fat and meaty yet classy. A treat to drink.

    June 8, 2019 - PnP, still very young as expected, blackberry, currants, charred meat, anise, licorice, asphalt, toasted oak, crazy levels of flavor intensity with a sexy silky palate. It hides its alcohol extremely well, and overall this is an exceptional wine, I just don’t see the perfection, lacks some mid palate structure and the finish doesn’t keep changing of flavor like I get with wines I feel are perfect. At this point I’m being picky however, I don’t think anyone would be disappointed Drinking this at any time.
