    June 29, 2020 - My last bottle of this delicious mature Syrah drank with burgers. Well integrated dark fruits, licorice and spice. Wish I had more.

    June 4, 2020 - Tone downed Cali Syrah from Pisoni. Seems to have settled over the years. Still nice fruit up front with some secondary earth notes, resolved tannins. Nice weight on palate. Definitely evolved from it’s release.

    May 9, 2017 - Delicious syrah drinking at peak. Inky garnet. Tons of dark fruits and spice especially pepper. Cassis, long long finish. Maybe a bit of heat. All in all a damn fine drink. Still enough tannin to guarantee another 2-5 years of development. Quite an improvement from te first bottle I had about 17 months ago.

    January 15, 2017 - Solid cali Syrah with meat, pepper, and spice notes mixed with strong ripe purple fruit. A lot of density on the palate but without viscosity. Lengthy mocha/tar finish with a bit of citrus flair. Very good.
