Reddish tawny and modestly translucent. Earthy herbal nose. Notes of cool slate stone, cranberries, black earth. Rich fruit. Silky and seductive. Coats the mouth with fruit and still present acidity/structure. Very good.

Mag! Green and herbaceous. Perfectly enticing.

Rich, cream, game, violets. Softened tannins. Bacon fat on the finish. One hell of a wine.

Not nearly as good as the spectacular bottle from 3 months ago (and this came from the same OWC). Perhaps it didn’t get a needed decant? Just a bit one-dimensional vs non-blind expectations.

Case study in Brett sensitivity. Way too band-aid-y for me and about half the room, lovely aged Syrah for the other half. Wish I was in the other half.

Tawny reddish color. Translucent but nice weight. Bright nose with notes of cranberries, menthol, herbs and crushed granite Velvet glove in the mouth. Rounded finish. In a great window. Has some years in front of it but why wait.

Lovely,, rich earth tones but not yet complex. The spice is hanging just below the surface

Yes, it’s wrong to start an evening of Syrah with the WOTN. Creamy, smoky but ethereally light, with layers of dried cedar and smoked tea leaves, loamy earth. I managed to keep some of this in my glass through the night. Finish goes on forever. No reason to hold but these seem to sustain at this level forever, too!
