At age 6 the tannins were fully mature in this bottle, revealing a soft textured and fairly open-kinit Syrah, flavorful though uncomplicated. Cool-climate feel in its sleek texture; flavors reminded me of Cotes du Rhone with dark cherry fruit, an underlying earthy component, and a slight floral edge. Nicely balanced and eminently drinkable at this stage, but I wouldn't hold it much longer. - HK 2018-12-24
