    February 7, 2015 - Very decent syrah. NOt over the top sweet or alcohol, nice acidity. Good value.

    January 20, 2013 - Not for the first time has the last bottle in the cellar proved to be the best, indicating that the rest were plundered too soon. The bouquet this time was quite voluptuous compared with the more closed-in bottles previously. Now it seems to have come to life. Add to that the smooth succulence of dark berry fruit, and notable grip, you have a memorable syrah

    June 8, 2012 - At Sabrina's...

    Scrumptious and enticing. Boysenberry, white pepper, chocolate pudding, olive and musk. A palate that builds upon itself and a medium-long finish. There's depth and the ability to show some acidity. Drink now - 2020.

    July 20, 2011 - shy nose that seems to be holding back, with air shows black pepper and floral aromas, initially everything about this wine was all over the place, and then it settled together and the body started to show weight, this is indeed uniquely food-friendly, not heavy, with a solid acidic backbone, the vivid red fruit, black currants, blueberries, meaty, iron and herbal flavors creep in with air time, I would recommend holding on to these longer as they were built to age gracefully (like an old-world syrah)

    April 30, 2011 - Popped open and the first thing that comes to mind is that it had a funk on the nose. Decanted and after 90 minutes, that strong nose was gone. This turned into a really elegant, fruity and well rounded wine. On the nose it still has a touch of earth, floral and red fruit. On the palate, this is smooth with good fruit but not a ton of it, a touch of mineral and mocha on the finish. Medium finish. We've never really focused on old world Syrah, but Drew claims that's what they are trying for. If this is old world style syrah, we'll be expanding our buying. Enjoyed this one.
