Identified as a unicorn. This was an amazingly nice Syrah. From detours vineyard by alban. Best with steak and lamb, long finish with loads of black pepper, blue fruits, and a sandy tannin at first. Beauty.

Absolutely fantastic. Had the last glass after placing it in the fridge with the cork in it for 2 additional days. Once it came up to temp a bit, I think it was drinking even better. Fantastic juice.

Seymour vs SQN Stock. Better aromatics and delicious, but overall too big and less interesting than the Stock.

Classic. Oak started to dominate towards the end of the night but still quite enjoyable.

Meaty, brambles fruit and pepper. Slight vegetation. Big palate presence.
