    December 25, 2021 - Had with Fred Donna Pam for Xmas. 2 hour decant and so lovely. Complex but approachable and super easy to drink. Couldn’t get enough

    April 30, 2021 - 2h decant. Exquisite. Cherries, blackberries, plum, roasted meats, olive brine, and pepper. Tannins have seriously softened and blend harmoniously with the fruit and alcohol. The wine is drinking beautifully.

    March 21, 2021 - Meetup at Eddie Ishaq's (Eddie's Crib): Wow. Yes. This out of the SQN and Cayuse showed the best but just by a nose.
    Dark stewed black cherries, molasses, burnt caramel, autumn leaves and bloody steak on the nose.
    Palate is completely in harmony and though at a whopping 15.8% on the bottle, there wasn't a rough edge in any sense of the words.
    Long decadent finish that goes for 60 seconds. What a fantastic example of New World Syrah.
    Sorry, I'd take Colgin (or Cayuse) over SQN most days of the week.

    February 27, 2021 - Notes of celery, pomegranate, dark cherries, leather varnish, balsamic glaze, strawberry rhubarb, chocolate, plum and a hint of earthiness and tobacco. An amazing wine with so many layers and depth. Not a typical analogy but what came to mind is that it is kind of like a Boeing 747: a hell of a plane that can carry a lot but somehow graceful and cohesive once airborne and in flight.

    January 10, 2021 - Everything I hoped it would turn out to be. Incredible demonstration of intensity. Needed 90 minutes of air to bring best self forward. Subtle aromas of wood chips, leather, and smoke meat. 10 second finish.
