    January 1, 2019 - Big juicy tasty wine with age ability. Balance is my only quibble with a slight astringent note on the palate. Maybe it’ll blow off. Long finish.

    July 23, 2016 - This was stunning. Patience rewarded. Has been sitting since 2010, and every minute of wait was worth it. Smooth, rich, balanced plum, boysenberry, and mineral notes. Perfect with grilled meats, steak.

    August 26, 2015 - Decanted over two hours and found an absolutely stunning Syrah. I'm guessing whole cluster fermentation from the unique expression.
