Very good wine especially for around $30. Dark fruit, rounded and plush. Attractive and drinkable.

Just amazing for such a young #syrah . Dark red and black fruit, some spice, a bit earthy. Wonderful mouth feel, delicate but very much alive. Stays for days.

Birthday dinner wine. Second time I've had it and what a difference some time and air makes. Cranberry and raspberry on the palate. Herbaceous and a little bitter mid palate with a very silky finish. Can see where others got the charred meat flavor. Great value! Can't wait to try in a few years.

Dark Red, Bold, Fresh, Smooth, Complex & Savory. Rich aromas of Cherry, Blackberry. Pepper & herb finish. Hope I have an opportunity to open another 2015 bottle in 3-5 years.
