    April 16, 2020 - It may be past the supposed DBD but it is still yummy. Not flabby or bricky still even has a bit of purple tinge on the rim. Strong dark fruit nose with maybe a tinge of Rutherford dust? Good viscosity with nice finish and suppple mouthfeel. Still good stuff Maynard!

    February 19, 2017 - Nose: Dusty (talc?), leafy, leather with a hint of eucalyptus or menthol

    Taste: Supple, integrated fruit but not distinct or precise. A bit zesty on the finish but not in a negative way. Hints of black olive throughout. Very nice, long finish.

    November 17, 2016 - Wonderful bottle; right in its drinking window. Don't recall the tasting specifics as I was too tired to post notes last night. All I will say is the drinking window here is too short; this is in a good place now and I don't see it following off for at least 3-4 years.

    April 13, 2015 - Doubted as to how well this simply named "Red Wine" could follow 2003 SQN Papa syrah. Should have had no doubts -- glorious. Unfortunately last bottle.

    January 3, 2015 - DEEP RICH BERRY FRUIT IN THE NOSE AND FLAVOR WITH BLACK CHERRIES AND BLACKBERRIES. NICE COMPLEXITY AND A MEDIUM TO LONG FINISH.
