    November 16, 2019 - USA Syrah tasting in Vino and Friends. (By JK in Maastricht): Beautiful and complex bouquet with minerals, vanilla and oak. Same on the palate. A mouth full of wine with good acidity and a firm amount of alcohol. Firm and very special wine.

    July 19, 2019 - Drank last nite at Copake with the kids on a whim. Still showing great--I'd forgotten the blend here, but the Rousanne is pretty obvious. Floral, spice, buttery popcorn, tropical fruit and apricots here. This is a big wine but plenty of acidity to offset the weight and heat. Distinctive and special

    April 23, 2017 - in a great spot right now. floral, flint, smoke, tropical, apricot. nice balance of primary and secondary right now. long finish. acidity keeps this remarkably fresh given the amount of weight on it.

    April 23, 2017 - Very difficult to judge, not a typical napa white at all due to its blend with roussanne. Enough acidity with a bit of after-bitterness. Not enjoyed by most of the guests compared with Kistler 2013. After all, this is a very nice experience!

    (Sine Qua Non The Hoodoo Man) Light butter yellow color; tart lemon, lemon rind, mineral nose with a floral quality and touch of VA; slightly oily textured, tart, narrow, concentrated lemon rind, vanilla and mineral palate; medium-plus finish (WOTF; the concentration made the Copain Roussanne seem watery by comparison)
