    March 21, 2021 - Nose is mostly olive, with prune, herb and menthol (?) behind it. Good acidity in the mouth, fruit in the background, and a long herbal & saline finish. Hard to know for sure, but my guess is that this will not improve.

    January 2, 2021 - Sadly my last bottle but opened at my wife's request for her birthday dinner.
    On the nose, beautiful aromas of dark cherry, hoisin, and spice. Deep and dark in color with just enough opacity. On the palate, there are flavors of dark cherries, chocolate, and a hint of clove. The tannins have melted perfectly into this wine. Finish is very pleasant and lasts about 30-40 seconds.

    This paired perfectly with home made pork neck ragu and paparedelle pasta. Last bottle of this vintage and it is drinking very well. I do not foresee it improving anymore but it still has maybe 2 years before any decline begins.

    November 29, 2020 - Purchased direct from winery. 1.5L bottle, decanted for 45 minutes & consumed over 90 minutes. Great balance & freshness despite big dark fruit profile. This has aged well & is fully mature but has life left. Last bottle sadly.

    June 22, 2020 - A delicious showing. PnP, this is what aged Washington Syrahs are all about. Dark fruits, hints of game meats, rich pressed olives, yum! In a great spot right now.
