    April 5, 2019 - Clear medium garnet; clean pronounced nose of figs, prunes, earth, cooked strawberries, mint, cedar and forest floor; developed nose; dry; medium plus acidity; medium tannins; high alcohol; medium plus body; pronounced flavour intensity; pfn with addition of vibrant fresh fruit, black licorice and tar; long finish; outstanding wine; drink now, but could age for another 5 years - why wait?; wow - beautiful tertiary notes integrated with lush fruit

    November 10, 2018 - Standout of a Syrah blind tasting evening. Drinking beautifully right now. Massive nose of dried and stewed dark red fruits along with cedar, pepper and licorice. Lots of depth and complexity on the palate. Briliant med+ body. Fine tannins and surprising freshness for a 14 yr old wine. No jammy or flabbiness here. Closing in on perfect and a fraction of the price vs. Grange or Hill of Grace.
