Cahto Ridge Alder Springs Vineyard Syrah 2012

2h decant. Shows that cut garden hose note. Iron & Bramble. Taste is underwhelming for a Pax. I wanted meaty funk. I got diluted creme de cassis. Lots of structure remains. — 6 months ago

Sonoma-Hillsides Syrah 2019

2019 vintage. Truthfully, I have underscored this wine the last two times I’ve had it (this last Nov and 3 weeks ago). Scored it 9.3 both times but it’s a 9.5. It just keeps impressing. Body is biggish but never syrupy/overwhelming. Flavors and textures come hurtling into your palate. This is so well made and delicious. — 5 months ago

I’ve only had the 2016 and 2017…seems to be a carbonic flair to them.


@Shay A Possibly/probably. Drinks almost like a heavier-bodied Burg while retaining all the Syrah flavor flav characteristics.
