Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2015

Light Ruby, about 1/3 whole clusters were used and aged in French oak, 65% neutral and 35% new. Aromas of berry fruits with floral spice. On the palate flavors of cherry and blackberry, light in style, with notes of tea, well balanced with acidity. Soft velvety tannins, medium length, ending with an earthy mineral tang. Very nice! Tasting Sample! — 2 years ago

Thompson Vineyard Syrah 2006

Hi ratings for having a dry cork (that crumbled!) but the wine is still huge. Wonderful body & chewy, cherry/anise w/ terrific balance.
Really happy w/ how this wine has aged!

I have one of those - been eyeing it. Upside to continue to hold?

Marc - hard to fully judge based on a one ounce tasting pour, but thought it was showing young. Good now, but I think there is upside with more time.
