Shockingly out of balance. Alcohol dominates. If it has gone dumb, its totally wacked out right now. Have never come across an AC wine like this. — 3 months ago
Every darn bottle from Joey is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. No wimpy Grenache came out of this bottle. Another great match with all the diverse chow. Cherry, plum, pepper, oak ... lush and mouthwatering. Drinking well now. — 5 months ago
Drinking perfectly right now. Restrained & elegant. Spice, smoke, incense, blueberry. Tannins are still present, but very fine.
Enjoy in a serene, calm setting to fully appreciate. — 5 months ago
Another winner. Great match with turkey & cranberry. Medium body, but plenty of concentration & structure. Air helped & seemed to spread its wings 2-3 hrs after opening. — 5 months ago
Not typically a French Syrah person.... this really impressed. Ran a 3 day bottle open experiment.
Day 1 - solid fruit & backbone, but you could tell it was still a tad angular.
Day 2 - a tad shutdown from initial opening.
Day 3 - expansive mouthfeel, lush fruit, great acid. Wish I bought a case on pre-arrival. — 7 months ago
Could probably sit for another 1-2 yrs & still project primary, bright Zinfandel nuances.
Raspberry, dark plum, blueberry. Well integrated oak & sufficient acid. A little air & slight chill is suggested. Alcohol not pronounced on this evening. — 5 months ago
