Wow. This was an absolutely stunning btl of Syrah. On the nose: violets, olive brine, bacon, soft vanilla cream, blackberry, dried blackberry, soft leather...amazing complexity. On the palate: fantastic acidity and density, pure syrah fruit, and very soft tannin on the finish. — 5 days ago
Color still very youthful. Nose is somewhat sultry, even with significant air. Lots of smoky gravel, juniper berry, tart dark berry, sweat, dark liquid minerals, dried irises. Focused and more berry-centric in the mouth, concentrated, with a long fragrant finish. A small note of alcoholic pepperiness accompanies some some remains tannin. Lots of unique character. — 4 months ago
Drank with onion and pepper brats and peach, tomato, and corn salad at Grand Lake cousin’s camp (2021). Light mouthfeel, hint of pepper and spice, but the spice might be the peppers. Raspberry, strawberry, and mild blueberries. Lighter than my style but good with the brats and good fruit. — 2 days ago

A little butterscotch on the nose, nice roundness to the wine, almost apricot flavors, very tasty! A bargain at state line liquor in Maryland. — a month ago
Inky purple vermilion.
Black cherry, bacon, and black pepper.
Thick start, decent acidity, light bitterness and medium astringency.
Well made wine:) — 2 months ago
Still very much alive and quite enjoyable. Straw yellow in the glass. Nose of apricots, ripe pears and butterscotch. Nice acidity brings this one fully into balance. Would be fun to have a couple more bottles just to see how long it could go… — 3 months ago
