    September 1, 2017 - Soft, polished, and beautifully balanced. This had neither the in-your-face punch of some younger SQNs I've tried nor the subtlety of the only other aged SQN I've had, but it was so delicious.

    August 24, 2017 - Chicago Wine Flock...Bill Having Fun with Flights (Wilmette, IL): Tasted double blind. Very clearly top notch Cali Syrah, with rich and concentrated black cherry supported with slightly sweet spice. Very dense and long. Probably some upside as hints of sweetness might lessen. Still very harmonious, even with that slight sweetness.

    August 24, 2017 - Smells amazing. Touch of meat? Fresh cracked white pepper, cherries, cinnamon, tobacco, allspice. Raspberries and dark cherry.

    August 24, 2017 - Dark red in color. Grilled meat, herbs, pencil lead, cinnamon and allspice on the nose upon opening. Highly concentrated and complex all in a good way. Waves of dark ripe cherries, a subtle hint of black pepper midway through. Sensational finish
