    June 4, 2021 - Wow this is tight. Really needs lots of air or patience in the cellar. Reminds we very much of a Cornas. I think that with time a better score will be merited, but uncertain as of now.

    November 5, 2020 - Interesting to compare with other Bedrock Syrahs. Definitely somewhat restrained -- a bit more "northern rhone" in style. Very dry, medium fruit. Look forward to trying the next one -- will decant a bit more.

    October 11, 2020 - Light and crisp (for CA Syrah) with wonderful pepper notes. No detailed notes.

    July 3, 2020 - Purchased from the list, served at room temperature (c.24 degrees Celsius). Dark purple colored, viscous, long legs. Surprisingly reserved nose, violets, cassis, very slight hint of spices. Red fruits, cherries, excellent mouthfeel, smooth tannins with good sap. Very well balanced - not a fruit bomb - lovely cool climate syrah. Medium finish - a longer finish would have merited a higher score.

    April 27, 2020 - Drank one glass in the late evening and let the rest sit overnight. The second day, the Syrah had really blossomed and settled into its flavors. Taste of black pepper, licorice and some cherry on the front end. Syrah is so different and unique in taste versus other reds.
