Community Tasting Notes 10

    October 4, 2021 - Inky medium purple. Dense. Dark fruit and violet. Fruit-forward, very young. Mouthfeel is dense (in a good way), m+ fine tannins and bright acidity. Looking forward to seeing how it evolves.

    September 16, 2021 - Medium bodied, blend of modern and traditional styling. Saturating California berries alongside N. Rhone minerality. One of the more N. Rhone-inspired California Syrahs I’ve tasted, particularly garrigue and conifer needles you’d find in Cote Rotie, plus crisp spiced berries of Cornas. Some meatiness. Not much reduction. Excellent balance, good length. Emerging complexity. Good value. May buy a case and follow for a decade.

    June 28, 2021 - Still gorgeous. So fresh yet so dark... blueberry, plum, blackberry, espresso, lemon, mint, lavender, peppercorns... juicy, meaty, earthy, spicy, lively, perfumed, extraordinarily long, world-class, not a lot of Syrah I'd rather drink. Young and primary, this will go for another decade at least.

    This is now open 48 hours (about half the bottle left, cork replaced and it sat in the cellar) and it is showing even better. It has taken on intoxicating aromas of spiced whipped cream and fruit liqueur, but it still has myriad fresh fruit, peppery, floral, meaty and herbal notes. Still juicy and lively on the palate, a bit more smooth today. Based on its performance after so much air, I would say that you should decant it for 6+ hours if you plan to try it in the next few years.

    May 30, 2021 - Excellent Syrah from a great producer. Beautifully balanced. Long deep red fruits with silky mouthfeel and nice acidity on the finish.
