Spice. Clove. Plum jam. Perfect development. We pulled the cork in Maggy’s memory.

Dominated by old world aromas of charcoal roasted meats, black pepper, black olive tapenade, licorice, smoke, Asian spices, and some hidden ripe red fruit aromas that trickle through. A full bodied red with copious amounts of dark raspberries, blackberries, plums that seem to be balanced by a savory almost salty midpalate with refreshing acidity that continues on to the long lasting finish full of mineral notes and polished creamy tannins.

My favorite wine of the night. New World Syrah at its best. Fun to experience with this 2000 vintage with its bottle age too. Supple and long lasting. Wine wine seemed never ending, much like the storied history of the family behind it. California classic.

Insane. Never had a new world syrah that throws this kind of nose.

A little hot at first. Roasted meat pepper and fame, full bodied and savory delicious.

2008: The overriding impression of the nose was smoky mezcal, no matter how many times I went back to the well. A silky almost glossy quality to the fruit. Most likely VA driving the nose, yet I imagine it's simply this bottle.
