    October 18, 2020 - This bottle was probably not as well stored as the last one. Slightly stewy flavors on the nose, less so on the palate. Otherwise a nice wine, still enjoyable, but a slightly compromised bottle.

    November 10, 2019 - Crushed rose petal, red fruit, blood orange, meat, and a hint of cherry cola on the nose. The nose reminds me strongly of a top Nebbiolo, rather than a Syrah. Red fruit and berries, brine, olives, and tart cherries on the palate, which is much more typical of a Northern Rhône compared to the nose. Lovely, long finish. Very interesting and very good.
