November’s 4th Friday was a big hit. There is no way I’ll be able to upload all the wines, nor give them the reviews they deserve, but there were a few worthy of mentioning!

New wine to me but right up my Syrah alley. Not as much funk driven as it is savory driven. Leaps from the glass with whole cluster aromatics of stems, sweet peppercorn spice, and very pure rhubarb tart. Light on the palate with added floral notes, smoked meat, iron and a finish of black pepper. Would like to try this again. Thanks

Needs serious air. No question it will improve in time.

Worthy of more to cellar. One of the best CA Syrah's I've ever tasted. Rich, dense dried & crushed floral aromatics, green olive, pink peppercorn, cedar, cranberry & red currant. Everything is perfectly in balance.

Took about 30 minutes but opened up nicely. Definitely Old World in style. Not a great value though....

Very delicate compared to the rest of the lineup. Black fruit, violets, and spice peek through
