Red cherry, plum, boysenberry, cedar, cigar, white pepper, dried meat, dried roses, violets, rosemary, gritty with a full mouth feel. Medium acidity, high tannins. Showing great and I’m sure it can sit down for many years.

Nice, balanced Syrah. Very food friendly too. Black raspberry, violets, touch of salinity and green peppercorns. Like!

Lean & mean... Ready to drink, but could certainly lay down for a minute.

Gripping, ripe blue and black fruit. Coolly refined, balanced with warm edges of rustic underbrush. Kalamata Olive, smoke, blood, gravel. At this price point, this was better than some Northern Rhone I've had and yet it does not abandon its sense of place. Serious wine.

Forgotten how good this was. More exuberantly Californian than the austere Clary Ranch. An expression of California all should aspire to.
