    March 4, 2017 - PnP. Quite aromatic and fresh on the nose. On the palate, less heavy than I had thought given the depth of the nose. Acidity keeps the overall impression relatively lighter than it would otherwise be. The high ABV is noticeable, but not in a particularly overt way. Overall, still comes across as relatively primary. Not sure where this is going for further aging. Not sure if the acidity will further fold into the overall palate, or instead be the "last man standing" as the fruit fades.

    Update: Decant. This really benefits from at least 30 minutes of air. Individual components of the palate meld, and create a much more lush impression, and a much more complex one. The finish also extends nicely compared to the initial impression. I should know better. This went from "ok" to "damn nice".

    August 13, 2016 - Liked this way better than I remember (probably haven't had a bottle since ~2010).... Big still relative to other bedrock Syrahs but well integrated and "makes sense". Still quite fruit driven and ripe. Blueberry with a bit of ripe blackberry spice. Just feels great, and too easy to drink for a 15%+ wine!

    December 21, 2015 - I would never guess this was over 15%. Some nice black fruits, olive, grilled meat and a bit of pepper on the nose. Smooth with blackberry and elderberry flavors, along with a some beef jerky, bbq and tar. Has cool-climate structure with integrated medium acidity and medium+ tannins, no heat. Should easily last through its 10th birthday but drinking well now.
