    December 7, 2019 - Étonnant comme mon apréciation de ce vin évolue dans le temps !...
    D'abord faut éviter de comparer avec des syrahs de la Rhone septentrionale. Pour reprendre avec mes commentaires de 2013, encore là j'aurais plutôt identifier un Zinfandel californien.
    Le bouchon, de grande qualité, a cédé au 3/4, le dernier quart était revêtu d'un miroir bleut cristalisé.
    Robe rouge beluté très trés dense, tel de l'encre.
    Nez expressif, avec dominance de fruit bien mûre, framboise, mure, bleuet, légèrement anisé et poivré (ce qu'un Zin n'aurait pas).
    En bouche, du fruit cuit mais pas confituré (heureusement), mûre, bleuet avec une touche de caramel brulé. On percoit un vestige d'acidité, les tanins sont tout à fait intégrés. C'est riche et généreux mais sans lourdeur. Typiquement nouveau monde du sud. Assez longue persistance sur la mûre cuite.
    Pas nécessairement mon style mais je dois reconnaitre que le vin s'est très trés bien maintenu et dépasse largement les projections de longévité des "experts". C"était ma dernière bouteille mais je crois que ce vin tiendrait bien la route encore 3-4 ans, tout de même étonnant, plus que bien des CH francais.

    August 29, 2019 - Big dark fruits with some subtle pepper on the nose. The palate was rich and smooth with more dark flavors. More complex than my last taste and still has some time to go

    June 3, 2019 - Last of 4 bottles purchase in 2010 from Wine Access.

    Cork broke so had to pour into a decanter. Great nose - meat, saline, blackberry, blueberry (only with airtime) and floral undertones.

    On palate, medium+ body, medium+ acidity, integrated tannins and long finish. Flavor profile was blackberry, dried cherry & tobacco. Very enjoyable and this wine has aged extremely well. 93+/-

    March 13, 2018 - This bottle was pleasant, with fruit less intense from time, but no significant bottle bouquet or development of tertiary flavors. It seems to be fading rather than blooming. Bottles 2 1/2 and 3 years ago showed more verve and interest. 88ish (past bottles up to 94ish)

    January 15, 2018 - Big, rich and balanced. Maybe a bit too big for me, but otherwise all the good syrah notes.
