So much olive, meat, beef jerky to this. Don’t pop and pour this, you’ll miss out. The red fruit alongside the secondary notes here balance everything out. Lots of non-fruit driven notes like spices.

Solid tannic closed wine. Needs time to open. No finish or nose. Restrained palate now.

Simply amazing!!! This wine has gobs of acid and tannin to lend the savory black fruit character the structure it need to age another 20 years!

Good but not great. A little disjointed. Perhaps time will bring it together.

Delicious Syrah. Super intense and concentrated even after all this time. I dont drink anywhere near enough of this to really say but I think it is p re etty unique in its flavor profile. I bet if you drank enough to be familiar that there is nothing else quite like it. Wine of the evening on an evening where there were lots of great wines.

From magnum. This was tight and muscular for a good hour or two. Eventually gave way to more fruit later on. Plenty of minerals and earth tones.
