    February 15, 2016 - Weekly tasting group #204; A fully blind test. (@ DJ): The bouquet shows dark forest fruits, sweet spices , menthol and rustic impressions. Same impressions on the palate, vanilla mild acidity and tannin. Mature and supple and no real hurry. Nice wine.

    April 10, 2013 - I had this a couple of time when we were at Singita and it was clearly the winner. First time when back home.

    Minerals, red and blue berries, intense and interesting. Truly a biodynamic vintner and clearly an outstanding wine. Pleased to have bought a case. This resembles a CdP, which is surprising given that its nature would lend itself more resemblance to Hermitage. Anyway, this was great!

    January 7, 2013 - Tannins still present so you can hold these for a bit longer. Medium bodied and elegant mouth feel. Blossomed with a few hours of air. Meaty and savory tasting without predominant fruit.

    October 28, 2012 - Typical dark purple syrah color with aromas of dried dark fruit, prune, spice, and leather. The flavors are much the same, but not as powerful as I had hoped. Tannins are present and a tad young, but this wine is still quite drinkable now. The finish is moderately short with a touch of complexity. However, the wine paired amazingly well with a grass-fed beef meatloaf.
