Popped open the synthetic cork to find a somewhat youthful smelling/tasting wine. It is what I expect Grenache to taste like. Medium body, good fruit, and just slightest hint of age after it was open for 30 minutes or so. Drink now.

I wonder how some other producers in that era had so much trouble with the synthetic corks but Casey did not. I have one more Eagle Point wine left. A Petite Sirah which was monster when first tasted at HdR and the last time I had one a couple years ago.
