Excellent. Red fruit and funk on the nose. Palate: Peppery minerals, red cherries, strawberries, plum, tobacco, smoke. Iron and carmelized meat on the finish.

incredibly rich, but not fat with overbearing ripe fruit. definitely more towards savory. Bill Easton does it right. more time to go with this wine.

Light brown hue with dominant prune and raisin flavors. Moderately oxidized, definitely past its prime, but mostly intact nonetheless

More flowery & perfumed than L'Autre. Sweet plum and violets.

Not sure what I was expecting but it wasn't this. Clean and bright, still on the young side, with all sorts of complexity. Red and black fruits, leaning towards the baked side, impressive acid, damp earth, grilled meat and bacon fat, all in a lean, concentrated package. I need to find more of this. 14.5% abv.

This is a tremendous Syrah. Bold yet complex and subtle in it's transitions. This is my third time experiencing this vintage and I am liking it better and better each time!

A Sierra foothills Syrah made in the Northern Rhone style. Very dry, dark berry, black current.

Nice Cali Syrah but still a bit young.

This wine is probably in my books past it's time. After it has been decanters and allowed to air for a couple hours it does smooth out. I have had it for a couple years. It's a nice wine but I think it's had it's time in the bottle.
