    October 7, 2018 - Drank this with Janice, Howie, and Mai at Totonno's Pizza in Coney Island. I originally tasted this out of the barrel with Mike back in the day. It drank beautifully! It's dark and chewy, and in a good spot. Wish I had another bottle. Drink now and enjoy.

    August 16, 2018 - Big smooth wine with lots of sweet ripe red, purple, black fruit with underlying caramel and earth. Wonderfully full and complex. A mature wine that is delightful to enjoy.

    June 17, 2018 - A fairly full bodied wine that is now mature and a bit softer, but still has plenty of dark fruit in a nicely balanced package that hides its 15% alcohol well and is true to its grape variety. This should drink well for few a more years, but is in a really good spot right now.

    August 12, 2017 - Smoky & peppery, a big and bold Cali Syrah. Delicious now, drink through 2020.
