Opened up a 2012 Sugarloaf (non-wc) last week, so good. I'm not a huge Syrah guy but dang, Mike's are awesome and they seem to get better with every vintage. Definitely in for some of the 2014s, very excited to try the new vineyards.

Just opened a 2012 Las Madres 100% whole cluster. Still breathing but it is fabulous.

The Sangiacomo Syrah rocks. Have a Halcon sitting that I just might pop if I ever get out of the hospital.

Order in.

After this and Bedrock, I'm getting thirsty from readings the notes.

Can someone speak to the style of the myriad syrahs? Is there a difference in style between these and the Quivet syrahs (and Cabs for that matter) ?

I am new to the mailing list. Do I have a prayer of getting any next week when they open it up?

Similar styles.

Don't miss the Semillon, it is killer!

Joined the mailing list last year and have only had the cabs, but they were stunning: amazing color, great concentration, and wonderfully complex flavors.

I was so taken aback that I got to wondering about their vineyard and cellar practices. I couldn't find much on their site. Are fermentations uninoculated? Are the fields dry farmed, organic, and/or biodynamic? Are there any additives in the wine, outside the usual suspects (e.g. sulphur, water, fining agents). I don't want to start a debate about the merits of any of these approaches, I was just curious as an additional data point.

If anyone can chime in, thanks in advance.

Mike's a very responsive guy. If you have questions about his practices, you'd probably be best to just shoot him an email.

In for a few. Wish I could buy more. The whole cluster Esther block from last year's release was great.
