    October 25, 2013 - Pretty consistent with my last bottle over 2 years ago. Somewhere between ruby and garnet in color. Lovely nose of smoke, ash, soil, eucalyptus, and dark red fruits. Medium body and finish, fairly high acid, and flavors of black cherry, plum, red licorice, and earth, and a nice little mineral streak shows up around the midpalate and lingers through the finish. Fantastic little Italian food wine for $10-15, and it doesn't get much better for pizza/pasta night. If this shows up in a newer vintage around $10, it's an easy case buy for me.

    September 19, 2013 - Bright magenta with a nose of red berries and cake. A bit tannic and lighter in body than expected, but quite decent for $10.

    January 29, 2013 - Très aromatique, fruité et floral, cuir mouillé
    En bouche: continuité, gouleyant, "sappy" framboise bien mûre, une légère salinité. Longue persistance.

    December 21, 2012 - A nose of cherry and spice, dark amber in color. A medium bodied red blend, with plum, cherry, smoke and spice on finish, was thin in volume for me.
