Jon says... Don't Buy

Something is wrong with this wine. Ted and I called each other and we both had a bad experience. This is not a “bad bottle” situation. It’s just bad wine.

Ted says... Mediocre

This wine is kind of like Bud Lite — I don’t really want to drink it, but if it is opened and in my hand, why not?

This Syrah started off with potential, black fruit and spicyness, with a tannic & spicy finish. But towards the end of the glass this wine morphed into mediocrity. Dull fruit and a dull finish, where’d that spicyness goto? The first wine where decanting makes the wine taste worst?
