    December 8, 2019 - In a good spot. Impressive longevity for a 14+% Syrah. Have one bottle left and not in any particular hurry.

    October 4, 2018 - 14.6% abv. Cork was in poor shape and broke up when I tried to extract it. I filtered the wine through a tea sieve. Impenetrable purple coloring. Attractive dark fruit with some underlying depth, textured and layered. Easy to gulp down but that would tend to make you miss the finesse. Fresher on the first two evenings--a bit tired the third evening. Many Zinfandels nowadays come in at 15% or higher alcohol. I appreciate that this is below 15%. I really enjoyed this although it could stand up to barbecue or something stronger than the baked pork chops I was having with it.

    May 5, 2018 - Very nice, savory Syrah that was drinking perfectly. No formal TN, shared with friends this evening.

    March 11, 2017 - Last of three bottles bought in 2013. This was the better one and was still going strong. Typical syrah nose and palate. Mature fruit but still plenty fresh and really perfumed. Great QPR too

    August 19, 2016 - Ripe fruit. Not a lot of pepper but not tasting sweet either. Medium-full-bodied. Maybe just a little short on the finish.
