Very strong peppercorn. And stewed violets. Nailed it with Thanksgiving turkey. After decades of multigenerational exhaustive research... earthy domestic Rhône blends are the way to go on Thanksgiving!

My contribution for the evening. This was powerful after 2.5hrs in the decanter and EPITOMIZED WA state Syrah. A mix of Cayuse funk on the nose with more ripe producers on the palate. No fox fur type notes, but very stemmy (100% whole cluster) crusted by black peppercorn and black olive tapenade. Blood/iron rich at the front and mid palate before it turns more blue and black fruit dominant with a touch of sweetness. More savory than fruity with smoked brisket and jerky but a nice balance of baked fruit. Drinking fantastic right now. Runner up for Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year in 2017.

Exceptional quality. Nuanced, dichotomy of weight but still very light.

Didn’t blow me away like it did 9-10 months ago, but still solid. A bit tighter than it was then, and just didn’t have the same vibrancy to it, but a 2 hour decant helped. Don’t expect time to help this one much. Drink ‘em up!

Great nose. Fresh cut flowers, red fruits. Light, easy drinker.

Whoa! Would put this up there with the Cayuse I had last week. Loads of bell pepper but not the same finish at this early age. Going to grab some more of this for the cellar and you should too.

Wonderful, complex nose. Full bodied with classic Syrah notes. Perfect balance. Surprisingly pleased by this wine.

A little light, Pinot like, but with a beautiful nose of red fruits and flowers, a touch of spice on the palate.. well integrated tannins! 95 points wine spectator..
