I preferred the Botanica slightly over the Ceras. The Ceras has more minerality and is more spice driven.

Pandora Red Rhone Blend 2011

Whoa mama! I think I might have found a near-rival to the Sami-Odi. Emphasis is on 'near.' This wine has POWER. Next to a 2012 Lillian, it just seemed to have more going on. This one in my opinion does not go to the savory meaty side, and is maybe a little bit more to the fruit side. Powerful black fruit, baking spices, nutmeg, caramel apple, plums, hint of grilled meat that I was getting more on the finish. Also quite peppery on the finish. Really nice. This one could probably be cellared for another decade at a minimum, but a really nice wine opened tonight! — 22 days ago

I’m in agreement with Mark here. Very fun to try next to the ‘12 Lillian and ‘11 Epoch Estate as all three were very different but wonderful examples of Syrah. Very little savoriness here as this was more an iron fist in a velvet glove of dark fruit. Soft and ripe blackberry, blueberry, roasted plum and a rich/baked mixed berry pie note. It felt encapsulated by smoked black cherries. Would love to see how this is 5 years down the road. Great bottle from @Keith Fisher
