full-bodied Syrah, with dark berries, tobacco and spice. Even better on the second day.

100% Syrah. A little stemmy but very good wine.

Kinda smells like bug spray... But not in a bad way, fun to try this given the Davis history

A first taste of legendary geneticist Carole Meredith's wines from Mount Veeder. We had the 2011, 2012 and 2013, and while vintage variations were obvious, so was the sense of place common to all three. The 2012 is riper and broader than the leaner 2011, but classic Syrah pepper and floral notes are there. The 2013 was a touch sweet but these are wines clearly made with preservation of terroir character in mind. I'd love to retaste them with more age. Rating here is for the 2012.

Burns Night bottle with braised short ribs. Red and blue fruit with great tannin. Muscular without being overbearing.

Bright fruit, black pepper, soft tannins. Truly a complete and delicious wine.
