First bottling of this juice. More concentrated than the regular stuff. Opaque...almost putple. Nose with black and red fruits with black dominating, forest floor notes, spices and some sweet oak evident. Big entry, heavyweight center and a 4&1/2 lapper finish. Needs another 2-5 to completely evolve. A massive, balanced, and killer Syrah that takes no prisoners. 92/92. 39 on futures. 14.4% alc.

Had another for lunch yesterday and MY!,MY! what a bottle of juice. Nose has developed some neat barny hints and the black fruits are more dominate. Seems to be DOTTOIG. Good Stuff but alas the production and allotments were minuscule. WW
