March 8, 2017 - This is really punching way above its weight and is such great value. Although the nose is a little green, in the mouth blackberry and plum swirl with good hearty tannins. A great finish completes the wine. 14.5% proof this is starting to drink now with a few hours in the decanter and could continue to improve.

February 11, 2017 - Brilliant stuff. Full body, black red color, this is way above it's pedigree. Black fruit, mature and powerful, showing notes of charcoal, coffee and cola. Elegant, freshly persistent bordeaux with a long finish.1 person found this helpful Comment

December 25, 2016 - Earthy and spicy on the nose and palate. Wine still had tannic grip even after it sat in the glass. Higher alcohol levels were somewhat noticeable. Overall the impression was a powerful, rustic wine that could stand up to some pretty hearty holiday food.

November 22, 2016 - Coloring is more burgundy than BDX; faint red fruits on a modestly dry palate. Fleeting flavors quickly dissipate front-palate. Long past its prime but fine tonite with pasta.
