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

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! — 4 months 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

California Syrah 2009

Full throttle yet dialed in and under control! First time with Maggie’s wines as I’ve sat on this now for six years and I was not disappointed.

After a three hour double decant; deep, inky purple in color; intoxicating floral perfume and lavender on the nose, liqueur, and meatiness; palate is so smooth and plush, with blackberry and blueberry compote, subtle smokiness, kirsch liqueur, mild black olive, definite lemon curd zing on the mid palate; the 15.2% alcohol is under control as I get no heat or burn; this is rich but such a smooth drinker. Just wonderful.

And for those who care...drinking tonight in celebration of Liverpool FC the 2019 European Champions!

Very aromatic, red berries and cola. Young wine with its best years ahead...but tasty now.
