Remarkable wine, less than 350 cases of this were made and we feared it may have been a goner. The cork was intact, perfect. Beautiful ruby color in the glass, spice, black fruits and tannins softened over the years all integrated nicely. What a treat to have a glass if this tonight. — 16 days ago
Still young and tight but shows enormous potential. Blackberry, blueberry, lavender, meat, iron and pepper. Lots of structure and a touch of oak that will come together in time — 6 days ago
The ratings below from Steve Matthiason and Raj Parr tell you everything you need to know about this wine. 2 heroes of California wine singing its praises. On Pax’s recommendation I opened one early, I immediately regretted that decision. Not because it’s not good, it is fact VERY good but I wouldn’t come to find that out until I had it open for SIX days. It took that long for the layers and layers of fruit to peel back to reveal the structure underneath. I can only rate now based on day 6, but in 10 years I might be able to go 100pts just like Steve did. — 24 days ago
Wine of the day, in my opinion. Or WOTD IMO. 😂 This wine usually needs a decant but with 8 years under her belt, she was a pop and pour delight. A bright, fresh bouquet from the glass and a mouthwatering acidity were refreshing after so many mature wines tonight. This was fantastic and evidence that patience is often rewarded. — 16 days ago
Love the couple that produces this fine Syrah. Continued prayers for those affected by the fires.
Syrah is one of my boys when I step away from my Napa Cabs and this one does not disappoint. The dark fruits and tanins are very present. I recommend enjoying this wine slightly chilled while cooking up a big pot of homemade chicken soup. — 13 days ago
Catches one off guard on initial taste which displays dimension and a depth of notes including rich plum followed by oak. Very memorable! — 9 days ago
