    August 5, 2019 - Wow! Still prime! Dark plum, chocolate undertones. Bravo!

    January 31, 2019 - 2006 Retrospective (Central Coast, CA): Dense, monolithic and a bit lifeless. Notes of kirsch and mocha. Surely not still developing at this age, so an unsatisfying wine for me.

    December 29, 2018 - Full nose of smoke, meat and sweet black fruit. The palate is concentrated with smoky black fruit and spice. For the ripeness/richness, this has excellent freshness and precision. Aging glacially. I don't drink much Cali Syrah anymore, but this is quite nice, especially for the tariff.

    January 16, 2018 - CT window shows drink by 2015 but this wine is still going strong in my opinion. Dark briary fruit and road tar on a long finish. This wine needs a rack of smoky baby backs for pairing!!
