Bottle opened with lots of body and a jam. Acids are definitely there but not overpowering. So excited to finally open this bottle but wish I was able to order more :(

Nice, but the acid kind of sticks out in a weird way. Needs time to integrate.

That nose is not your typical Cali Syrah. Channeling N Rhone knowledge in Amador. Dry finish, built to age. That has life.

I dare you to slowly gargle this and not love it. Let's not talk about why I know this.
