    June 18, 2018 - This is smokin' good. Plenty of freshness and fruit with texture and savor. I'll see how it holds up in the bottle on day 2. I suspect it will do well.

    December 10, 2017 - Medium garnet red color with a pink rim. After a little air, the nose displayed ample boysenberry, plum, and lavender notes. The perfectly ripe fruit coated my palate with boysenberry, plum, lavender, and smoked meat. Structurally, this wine had balanced acidity and well as fully integrated tannins. Overall, this remains my favorite vintage of Sandler’s syrah because it has ripe, full fruit as well as a refined, rounded mouthfeel that only a balanced, well-aged wine can provide. Outstanding.

    November 18, 2015 - Dark garnet color. The nose was classic syrah - roasted meat, pepper, floral notes, and plum. On the palate, the flavors echo the nose with the addition of a mineral note. It is plush in the mouth with integrated tannin and balanced acidity. Overall, this has been a great wine every time I have taste it, and it remains my favorite vintage of Sandler Syrah

    November 7, 2015 - Had with dinner, slight plum/prune notes upon opening had me a bit concerned but faded as the back end pepper and spice took over. The fruit turned leaner and red with more time open, and there was a just the right amount of grip on the finish.

    May 28, 2013 - Glad I have another of these. This was a very nice syrah - and I am not a huge syrah lover. This showed some great blue/dark fruits, earth and spice. Tannins have softened but were still present. Long finish. At a great spot right now.
