    January 22, 2017 - solid wine. Nothing remarkable. Cherries and spice, leather as some others have noted. I paid 35 - still goood QPR.

    December 15, 2016 - Solid but not wowed. Good power with a little finesse. Dark cherry, blackberry, a little tobacco and ??? that's pretty much it. Tannins are coming together nicely, still acid up front, just left wanting more.

    November 20, 2016 - I was disappointed with this wine when tasting it a year ago, we enjoyed it more today. Fruit is strong, tannins mellow. The finish is still weak, however.
