This is just a killer Syrah blend. It’s really good as a pop and pour, but explodes with even just 30mins of air. It’s ripe, savory, juicy and smoky all at once. Fresh squeezed blackberries, raspberry pie, cherry pipe tobacco and grilled plum dominate the nose. Not as heavy or dense as expected on the palate, showing a bit of lift with some bacon fat, graphite, and even some more delicate notes of potpourri. At around $50/bottle, this is drinking above that price point right now.

Impressive fruit, lots of leather, cigar box and herbs. Bitter tannins on the back end, but a very solid effort.

Light on its feet for being 78% Syrah. Floral and dark earth notes.

Very nice. Big Syrah from Santa Barbara county. Raspberry and cherry pie with some earth and spice. Very well balanced for the high alcohol and extracted fruit.

For an entry level wine, and $80 at a restaurant, I thought this was pretty incredible. Intense nose and palate of wildflowers, blackberry concentrate, blood, and pepper. This would have beaten several wines at 3X the price on the list.

Nose shows a strong bouquet of red fruit and florals with a touch of lead. The robust nose is somewhat deceiving as flavors of cherry, raspberry and cherry at first taste slowly fade in the mid and back palate, as tannin takes over. Needs 3hrs of decanting before it hums.
