    July 20, 2021 - Light-to-medium-bodied, with bright, crunchy fruit (still!). Drank well over 3 days. 14.2% ABV.
    88-89

    June 24, 2021 - Much lighter bodied than I would expect for Syrah. Was hoping, given the pedigree involving Bob Lindquist formerly of Qupé, that this could be the proverbial $12 wine that tastes like a $20-30 wine and becomes an "every day house red". Sadly, it wasn't. Popped-and-poured (after all for an inexpensive every day wine, who wants a wine that needs lots of TLC before it's worth drinking). It was merely "ok" -- for me - wife did not like at all. Drinkable, but not something I'd buy again.

    June 16, 2021 - Not meant to be consumed immediately in my opinion. . Needs to open an sit for a day or so. With cork on top. More fruit forward after first night an capping wine an letting sit room temperature for two days. Great nose. Great taste on third day. Alcohol taste an smell has decimated.

    April 1, 2021 - Consistent with the other notes here, bright red fruit, cracked pepper, a touch of meat and sesame paste — really lovely nose that definitely screams Syrah. The palate to me isn’t quite as distinct or defined, bright red fruit, pepper, and maybe a touch of florals on the initial taste, but it feels like the nose has more going on. Medium body and an open giving style, will pair with plenty of things.

    March 19, 2021 - Fruit forward Shiraz, easy sipping, enjoyable but no wow.
