High alcohol but delicious Syrah with pork tenderloin ($20). Preferred Armour Heliotrope ($29) from Royal Slope Wenatchee WA. — a month ago
Deep, bloody, fermenting fruit, cherry liquor. Intense. — 8 months ago
Holding up very nicely. Could probably use a bit of decanting to open up with next bottle. Bold rich flavor and lots of pepper on the back end. — 3 years ago

Spicy nose, wood and dark fruit. As this airs, the funk appears.Mid weight, mouth filling, leaning towards the savory side. Interesting, mineral aftertaste. More Rhone than U.S. A middle road. No heaviness, hides it’s 14.6° quite well. Herbs, soil, and an acidic kick on the finish. Leaves the palate wanting more. Deliciousness.
Curious to see if day 2 brings out more weight.

Plums, smoke, raspberries, amazing nose — a year ago
This has California written all over the nose, sweet sourdough bread yeast.
Some sharp berry lies down the walkway for some other cool fruits to come a Prancin’- Bing cherry, mulberry, mint, raspberry licorice, and a highly vibrant kumquat acid that really shocks and awes.
Can u dig it?
Yes I can.
-edit- After some open air, this really shows a vegetal tone, like a shishito pepper stalk.. — 4 years ago

Medium yellow gold. Bracing, orange fruited, orange blossom, hint of pithy grapefruit, snappy nasturtium/peppery undertone. I feel the new world weight and breadth on the palate compared to the next wine.... — 4 years ago
