Fennel and deep red and blue fruit compote nose. Very fruit forward palate with loads of blueberries, blackberries, and currants with fine tannins. Very succulent and not a lot of nuance. Left this open overnight and it is a better wine the second day. Well-made, but not my style of Syrah. I have four bottles to give as gifts.

Very nice. Classic Syrah, lots of fruit but well balanced.

Gamey meat and fennel aromas give way to a medium bodied tannin profile with a slightly bitter sweet finish.

Right at PnP w soft red fruit and some pomegranate tartness and a hint of tobacco. After open a while the tobacco notes were more enhanced and the fruit became riper. Also some black pepper spice emerged towards the back. Nice layers.

Really good dark red fruit and some earthiness. Lightly spicy as well. The oak definitely is apparent here towards the finish.

I guess I bought more than 2 bottles as previously reported. Third try is still a big disappointment coming from this family. I won’t be making any more blind purchases of wine from this family. I think it is amazing that they would destroy their reputation by selling this quality of product. So sad...

This wine was awful. Not flawed, just bad! Bought on family connection to Silver Oak. Glad I only got two bottles. Got to find an enemy to give the other bottle to. Destroys my interest in buying anything from Meyer Family Cellars.

First try of a wine from the Meyer Family Cellars. Was disappointed in this as I thought it was weak and not showing much character. Was hoping for more.
