Taste a little like I would imagine a Zin grown in the Northern Rhône. Nose has maple syrup, sweet blackberry, and surprising granitic minerality. Equal parts savory and fruity in the mouth. Ripe but not jammy. Very full but the acids are decent and the tannin is very soft and fine. Nice effort! — 2 days ago
This is a great Syrah from Sierra Foothills, California. Dry, spicy and fruity on the palate.
Showing black fruits with earth, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices, wood, vanilla, coffee and cola.
Full bodied and bold with big tannins, after 2 hours of airtime.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Will be even better in 3 to 5 years. Delicious now, though.
I had it over a year ago and it is so much better now.
I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

Nice brick/dark purple color. Fairly mellow nose. Flavor is classic Sierra mountain foothills Zin. Has jammy ripe berry flavors with some licorice and berry stuff. Some funky stuff too. Not exactly dominate zinful notes, but just great red none the less. — 4 days ago
Love the minerality Complex acidity minimizing fruit. Very interesting — a day ago
This wine has a lot to offer at its price point. Enjoyed with family following dinner out. We were unable to finish and remaining wine was stored refrigerated for 2 nights. This wine was as good if not better the 3rd night. Many wines seem to fall apart within 24 hours. Recommend decanting and aeration night one.
Well worth the $20 per bottle. No regret if you don’t break out the Coravin as it will hold up nicely a couple of days. Solid structure and balance. Drinks like a Cali Cab❤️ — a month ago
My second rodeo with Mr. St John, glad I am here: a deeper dive into black fruits than his Cote Du Rhône homage, & a more generous palate. Still all in balance, a restrained hand, but the terroir speaks through his hand, amen. Grenache, some Tempranillo, some Mourvedre, and some Graciano. Decanted about 1/2 hr. Delectable allows me to name only my local tag sale but not my town? Whaadup @Delectable Wine ? — 11 days ago
Nice balanced Barbera. Has a soft, lighter body compared to other Cali versions. True to type and lovely to drink. — 16 days ago
