    November 24, 2019 - Still drinking very nicely. It needs a decant or at least open it an hour before serving. Rich and plush with well integrated fruits and a smooth finish.

    July 25, 2019 - I'll start this off with a note that I've lost interest in Syrah lately...

    Pop and pour.
    Color showed no signs of bricking yet.
    Nose was sweetish and I'd swear it was co-fermented with Viognier, though I know it wasn't. Hints of pepper in there.

    Palate was super smooth, nicely integrated and had a pepper note on the finish. Other than that, there was a decided lack of complexity and layering. It was very linear in profile. Very nice but not terribly complex.

    April 12, 2019 - Deep dark purple color with balanced taste of dark stone fruits. Long finish. Excellent wine.

    October 23, 2018 - Loved this again. Same taste profile, had the blood, meat, mineral, and dark fruits. Agree that this coats the palate.

    March 31, 2018 - Phenomenal- super well integrated. Took out of wine frig - decanted for a couple of hours before drinking. Got better and better before it was gone - 3 hours later.

    (Betz La Côte Patriarche Syrah Yakima Valley) Deep and dark in color. A lively nose with light smoke, game, fresh berries, floral notes, and black licorice. Seamless on the palate with a creamy mouthfeel and a perfect amount of rich, intense fruit. 80% Syrah, 10% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre. Red Willow, Olsen, and Alder Ridge vineyards.
