    April 23, 2016 - PnD. Deep red berries, blueberries, vanilla, and slight meatiness on the nose. Great texture. Lighter in body but with good extraction. Just fabulous.

    Enjoyed in a Riedel Vinum Syrah glass at 61F.

    April 20, 2012 - Even better than last time. Similar to a higher-end Chateauneuf du Pape. Lots of refined fruit towards the black end of the fruit spectrum.

    March 18, 2012 - Excellent wine. Great fruit and body. Agree about the creamy texture that someone else pointed out. One of the best syrahs I have had.. I wish I had more. No heat on the finish. This wine was very well balanced.

    December 22, 2011 - Outstanding syrah! This wine continues to amaze us. Rich dark fruits and a nose to die for. After tasting rather mediocre for so long, this wine is really coming into its own.

    December 4, 2011 - - Garnet color and aromas of blackberry and cherry. It's balanced and has flavours of blackberry, black currant, black pepper and cherry with a medium/full body. Polished texture with a long finish - Excellent wine with distinctive flavors of fruit. Decanted for thirty minutes. Nice pepperiness which complemented our dinner of a Mediterranean spiced beef stew.
