Big boy ladies and gentlemen, BIG! Full expressive nose, BBQ meats, charcoal and mesquite smoke! Tight full mouthfeel, holiday fruit/rum cake, smoked apple, tamed charcoal, well framed with a backbone of tobacco and tar. Exotic spice, slight iron and smoke that sails on and on. Very harmonious and complex. Drink now or give this another 7-10 years.

I'll stack this up against any California Syrah and more than a few from the Rhone. Special stuff, spot on at every step of the way. I thought I was gonna hold this a few more years. Oops.

Cigars, dried meat, resinous herbs, dried violets, leathery earth. Needs a bit to unravel. Tannins are firm but not too dominant.

That was tasty. It won some hearts around the table and late into the evening around the fire pit.

Wet moss and dark fruit, fruit forward tannins. Some funk. Drinks well, smooth finish. Lovely Syrah but a bit too fruity for my liking.
