I tend to buy a case of these every year and drink them all young. They would last longer, but at least it helps me keep my hands off of the single vineyard wines. There has been a change in the ownership of the winery but the wines seem to be consistent. Purple in color opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, cedar, black pepper, slight black olive and char. Full bodied. Good balance. This is a riper style of Syrah but not over the top. On the palate, lots of black raspberry fruit with some char and black pepper. Nice finish. Drinks great on its own and would work well with chili. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
