100% knowingly opened this wine too early, but I couldn’t help myself. It’s one of my favorite California wines, and 2018 was such a spectacular vintage I couldn’t wait to see what Que Syrah Sera. And boy oh boy this is an epic wine in the making. It’s still incredibly “primary” but gives every indication that it will blossom into a mind-blowing wine. Right now it smells of bloody meat and thyme and forest floor. In the mouth deeply stony flavors of cassis and blackberry are shot through with potash and chopped green herbs while a gorgeous green olive / dirty martini salinity lingers in the finish with a grapey fruit that says “you idiot, if you’d just waited a year or two....” I don’t regret it though. Another winner from @duncanarnot and crew.

Black pepper and bright berries for days. Lilac. Smokey, grapey, just a touch of beef. Tart, energetic and refreshing if not profound.

Reminds me of Souhaut.
