    November 8, 2019 - With some air it filled out and went from being tight/concentrated to mellow and smooth black currant, plum, pepper, blackberry pie, ash. Fairly tannic, prickly acidity.

    April 9, 2019 - Pop and pour through venturi. Reminds me of a wine oak notes and spicy bright flavors. Some pepper and berry. Tangy and long finish. Will decant longer tomorrow and compare to today.

    March 10, 2019 - This was a fantastic wine. Nose was singing after about a 30 min decant. Need to buy more!

    February 23, 2019 - Winebar [4 Whts & 8 Reds] from 02/22/18 (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): 90% Syrah, 6% Grenache, & 4% Mourvedre, harvested from the steep slopes & calcareous rocky soil of Willow Creek's GV2 Vyd; 30% whole cluster fermentation & 22 mos aging in new FR oak;

    N: Closed; RIPE berries (blacks, poss blues) with undertones of pyrazines? Vanilla with addt'l swirling?

    P: Med, poss MF, body; NICE, almost swtish frt met by some astringent pucker which at least somewhat resolves by the LONG, very, VERY slightly bitterish finish with a tangy/swtness to the dusty tannins. NEEDS/deserves through '20, I'm guessing, then at least APPROACHING its 10th. My VG+/EXC-, likely the higher with time. 97 pts Jeb Dunnuck; [This vendor's $64.95 is as good as any of wine-searcher's currently limited offerings.]
