Monday, December 21, 2020 - I like it because it’s 18 years old, domestic and still drinking nicely. A straight forward syrah with fleshy fruit that’s starting to mellow. I get some black pepper on the nose , but no Bret as previously mentioned. Unfiltered, luscious fruit that is moving into the next phase without picking up much secondary nuance I think this wine will continue to age nicely but not convinced it will improve. In any case, I am enjoying it on a cool winter night with soup, cabbage and sausage. 13.5% abv reminds me of a time before climate change took over enology.

3 hours later, in decanter I like even better. It has integrated beautifully and is a wonderful food beverage
