    March 20, 2020 - Day 1: Rockstar!!! Funk, menthol, gravel, raspberries, rose petals and exotic spices. Medium plus finish. Wonderful! This wine is in its sweet spot. Drink now to 2022. 94 points

    February 17, 2020 - This is awesome right now. Had a couple of glasses decanted for maybe 30min. While I would not say the same for Pinots, I really do appreciate some age with syrahs. Flavors have integrated well and tannins have mellowed out a little bit. This is drinking great right now.

    December 12, 2019 - Delicious dark cherry, leather, and earthy notes on the nose and palate with refreshing acidity on the long finish.

    January 21, 2019 - Pop and pour, this needed 30 minutes+ to integrate and for some brett to blow off, which thankfully it did. This wine is clearly in the traditional Arcadian style, and to me, the ripe vintage is also evident with a higher content of fruit. Therefore, this wine is full of character right now, and not completely integrated. Red fruit, funk, cured meats, blood and raw beef stand out on the nose/palate. I'm glad I have 8 more, maybe drink 1 a year for the next 8 years.
