What a gorgeous nose, the bouquet was deep and rich, showing baked blackberry, black cherry sauce, sweet herbs, birch, sage, and crushed stone. On the palate, it displayed silky textures with medium weight, showing savory and sweet notes of black fruit, amazing minerality (almost salty, in the best possible way), herbs, dark soil and violet floral tones. The finish was dry with minerals and black fruit coating the senses. The first hour after pop and pour this drank so easily that we could have finished it on the spot, but I’m so glad that we took our time, because it opened up beautifully over time.

Ageless! 11yrs old? Will easily lay down another 11yrs. Exceptional bottle if Syrah!

Would not have guessed USA if tasting this blind. Nice balance of fruit and earth. Wine has character and good depth. Enjoyed it!

An amazingly example of aged CA Syrah. Great balance of red fruit with savory underpinnings. Fine integrated tannins. Medium body with + finish and acidity.

Still plenty of time left on this one. Opened two, one unfortunately corked but otherwise sound.

Violets, bright acidity, and cherry fruit. So young.
