    March 29, 2021 - Peppercorns and game over a core of plum fruit. This is a more savory and earthy Syrah. Perfect for some, but I like to see more fruit in mine.

    April 27, 2019 - Very much still alive, and great. Nose focuses on dark blue & black fruits & melted licorice, with dried florals & a little herb included. Palate is well-balanced & shifts toward those dried elements & pepper. Hint of creamy vanilla in the midpalate transitions to a nice finish, still showing lively acid. Still could go a few years but I really enjoyed this today.

    Edit/add: 3 days later after pumping under vacu vin...showing even better. More woodsy spice on the nose (think chicory), and a tilt from fruit toward structure on the finish. This could have gone at least a few more years pretty easily.

    May 8, 2016 - full bodied, but tired berries and prunes on palate. still tannic, but not optimistic for future

    December 4, 2015 - An earthy, cool climate Syrah. Notes of blackberries, tar, campfire, and graphite. Not really my style.
