This 5-year-old Red Blend from California is delicious now. Fruit forward with nice complexity. Shows a great mouthfeel with a nice tangy finish.
Needs 30 minutes to open up properly and show the big tannins. After an hour, spicy notes come in and make it more interesting. After two hours of airtime, the tannins calm down and integrate very nicely.
Good to by itself as a sipping wine, or with food. I paired it with cheeses and fresh blackberries.

The 2016 ‘Quarzo’ Syrah is drop dead stunning. Sourced from Ann Kraemer's Shake Ridge Ranch this instantly grabs your attention with its dark inky color and vibrant aromatics of ripe black cherries, fresh violets, smoked bacon, black olives and hints of earthy minerals all exploding from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, fresh and layered with a center of juicy dark fruits, black olives and violets that burst on to the long supple finish. This is a total gem of a Syrah from Andy Erickson and Annie Favia that is simply delicious now, but will certainly continue to evolve incredibly well over the next decade. — 7 days ago

Light crisp and refreshing. Good food wine, as well as stand alone sipper. Character is light, golden straw, Sierra Foothill terrior. 13.3 ABV. Still relevant and very enjoyable on day three of being opened. Discovered at Ruthe Roberts Wine Collective.
