    April 19, 2016 - HdR Farewll BBQ (Hospice du Rhone): A couple at the next table brought this. I asked them if they would trade for a taste. Initially they said no (huh?) but then spied our wines and came over for a trade. Black cherry fruit. Still quite tight and in need of time. Black cherries. Licorice. A bit of heat on the end.

    September 13, 2015 - This is the first of the three that we have tasted. I am working backwards??

    Color is blackish. Absolutely opaque.

    Huge nose of black and brambly fruit.

    Super huge barrel/oak influence. Lots of tannicity remains.
    Pepper, blackberry, cinnamon??, meaty like old world syrah, but with a huge new world in your face twist. More new world in the nose than the palate.

    Long finish that lasts and lasts.

    Drinking great now, but I anticipate this will stay level/improve? for another decade.

    January 26, 2014 - I was worried that this would be overly oaky compared to the other '08s, but it has handled the oak treatment very nicely. Complex, spicy, long. Dark, with lots of meat and blood. Great mouthfeel.

    October 20, 2013 - Pungent nose, a little rubbery (reductive?) but also a wall of creamy blue fruit, game, and violets. The palate was rich with black fruit and bbq, but not too heavy, with an umami lift from of black olive, boysenberry, bacon fat and some oak. Somewhat like a Two Hands Garden Shiraz or a Pax Walker Vine Hill, a smackin' delish fruit bomb Syrah.
