    November 28, 2015 - The wine looks violet colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like black currant (cassis), lead pencil and alcohol/hot. It tastes like red currant and lead pencil. The body is full. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes short. The wine has low acidity.

    February 8, 2015 - Great QPR, easy drinking, medium bodied smooth wine. Initial vanilla and coconut notes went away after an hr of air. Black cherry, currants on a silky frame. Nicely crafted.

    January 16, 2015 - Better than previous tasting. More going on here--bright and light mouthfeel contrasted with a cocoa + mint laden plum palate. Livened up a curry&ginger chick pea skillet dish and also wonderful as dessert. Let's hope the 2011&12s I have measure up

    January 15, 2015 - Surprisingly good Merlot. Paired with roasted chicken. Great price, too.
