    May 16, 2022 - Beautiful californian Syrah.Gorgeous nose of black and red fruits,tapenade,floral notes and spices.Elegant and refined,so fresh and so pure,with such incredible smooth mouthfeel.This was singing.As a European I'm really surprised by the beauty of this wine.Delicious.A real crowd pleaser,but in a good sense.

    March 21, 2022 - The fruit here was really high pitched. A lot of acidity and only a medium length finish. High intensity fruit accompanied by a bit of spice. Time will help this but not a favorite vintage for me from this producer.

    February 19, 2022 - Super enjoyable. Smooth and settled after a four hour decant. Was lacking that third and fourth gear, though.
