A bit tired, and showing a sour mid palate.

Tasted alongside the 82. This 1983 was deeper and richer than the 82. Both wines were chilled and warmed in the glass as we held them. Notes of old leather and sweet tobacco and cherry. Dark fruit on the palate with great acidity. More so than 82. Tasting the 83 make me want to try the 1990 again so bad.

Gamey, iron, blood, stewed fruit but smooth palate. Lots of funky goodness here.

Another 4th Friday for the books! Insane pulls this month to follow up the most epic month (April) that we’ve ever had!

Total treat. Plum and lead but not overbearing at all. Some cherry, earthy funk, clay. Still has 5-7yrs of life ahead of it. Incredibly smooth.

Dark tawny. Opaque. Huge nose. Notes of black cherry, menthol, ripe blueberries, graphite, moist soil, plums and a little anise. Rich and silky in the mouth. Still youthful. Perfectly balanced. Long finish. I know this wine is controversial to some but it's always performed for me.

Pretty tender - giving up its fund to a glorious aroma - wax, dried fruits potpourri - svelte and very long flavors. Great with aged cheeses

The fruit jumps out at you. Best in a Pinot glassware even though it’s Syrah. Beautiful aromatics.
