This is a very tasty Syrah from Mendocino County, California.
Showing black fruits with oak, vanilla, chocolates, tobacco, spices, barnyard, earth, light vegetables and peppercorn.
Dry on the palate with nice complexity and mouthfeel.
Nice finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This 100% Syrah is good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours of airtime. Tannins show up after a couple of hours.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats, cheeses and fresh berries.
14% alcohol by volume.

Excellent Chardonnay, especially once open for 45 minutes. Nicely balanced And starting with apple, changing to oak,and finishing with acidity. — 21 days ago
Well put together. Lift and density with nice meatiness. Pretty dense complexity but without weight. Very complicated. Recommended — 14 days ago
Wakes up quickly with air. Initial notes and 91 pt score after 15m in a Burgundy glass. Damp earth, high toned red fruits. Acid lifts the palette of an otherwise “sweet” and candied style. A bit simple overall. Following an hour open this gained at least a couple points. The complexity and finish gained significant depth. I wish I could compare this to Evening Land’s version of this Pinot. — 2 days ago
Good but not exceptional American Pinot Noir. Leave it open an hour before consuming and the harshness in the finish will disappear. Nice cherry fruit up front but a little rough in the finish. Likely this wine will be considerably better after another two years in bottle. — 22 days ago
Straightforward French-style Chardonnay, with nice apple notes and only lightly oaked. A very good but not exceptional Chardonnay. — 18 days ago
Nice wine but for some reason not quite singing at the same level as the last bottle we had. A trip to Oregon wine country - including a visit to Evening Land - was the first pandemic related trip we had to cancel. This is still a very nice wine with great balance between crunchy cherry and more earthy notes. Long finish with good acid, and a nice pairing with duck breast with a cherry sauce. — a month ago
