July 4th Friday was a total blowout! Killer bottles one after another. Here are just a few of the bottles we all enjoyed!

An astounding Syrah, and one of the best I’ve ever come across. Didn’t even know Ovid made this wine. At 9yrs old, balance is perfect. To me, this brought in what makes all US Syrahs great...smoked meat, olive and savory notes (Walla Walla Syrahs), charcoal smoke and grit like finish (Paso Syrahs) and decadent red and black fruit (Napa Syrahs). At 9yrs old, this seemed to just be blossoming in to a stunner. Great bottle,

Should’ve waited on this. Great but too young.

Deep, dark opulent baby that needs a few more years to integrate but once it does it will be bombastic!!

I was really interested to try this Ovid Syrah after a number of years, but it was a real disappointment. The nose and texture seemed to be there but it was fantastically muted. I feel like it needs a day out of the bottle so I’m going to try it again later today and see, but at first blush and after a couple hour decant, this wine did not come to the party - instead, it hid like a turtle in the shell. Since the takeover of the Vineyard, I’ve stopped taking most of my allocation.
