    April 17, 2021 - This wine is quite young and needs lots of time still. Tight, with some solid blackberry at the center, but hiding beneith a lattice of racing tannins. This may be promising in a few years...we'll report back then! Softer on day two, but even with ample air it never really came around.

    March 19, 2021 - Immense mouthfeel, with beef bullion, black tea and sage notes. Should age well, but provides no lack of enjoyment at present. A big, bold, dry, and not overly tannic Syrah that takes a couple of hours to open up. Would heartily compliment a grilled steak.

    November 5, 2020 - Colour medium ruby, medium+ pronounced. Youthful. pepper, liquorice, fig, prune. Palate dry, high acidity, medium+ body, pronounced flavour intensity with cooked blackberry, medium finish.

    November 4, 2020 - Clearly well made, but lacking character at this stage. A little heavy on the oak for my taste, as well. Has the structure to age, so I will revisit in a few years.

    September 24, 2020 - Bold, juicy, and delicious. Aromas of black currant, celery, and caramel. Short finish, with a pleasant bittery 'pop'.
