    November 12, 2022 - ESTG does American Syrah (and Petite Sirah) (Seattle, WA, USA): Super smoky, obvious Rocks funk, nice acidity and grip. Apparently the XOBC wines are made by the Rotie Cellars team for Brandi Carlile.

    October 24, 2019 - Opened, but not decanted, for over an hour, at a NYC Italian restaurant, with my wine group. Our final wine of the night, and most of the food was already gone. That said, we loved it. Medium+ length finish. Beautiful aromatic nose.

    October 7, 2019 - Hello, Rhoneā€¦ the nose showed masses of crushed blackberry, raspberry and savory spice, as smoky minerality, hints of provencal herbs and animal muskiness added depth. On the palate, satiny, mid-weight textures flooded the senses with ripe black fruits, offset by vibrant acids with a twang spiced orange rind and salty-savory mineral tones, yet through it all--pure elegance. The finish was long, with hints of youthful tannin beneath savory dark fruit, wild herbs, that wild citrus twang, and hints of exotic spice. A minute later, I could still taste echoes of tart black fruit. Bravo.
