    April 21, 2014 - Garnet, iridescent colour, without sediment. Medium/light body. Slightly floral and vegetal nose with green pepper dominating the palate. Not great. Left me with a headache-sulphites?

    February 16, 2014 - The wine looks garnet colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like oak, burnt, high toast and black currant (cassis). It tastes like black currant (cassis), oak and high toast. The body is light/medium. The wine has angular texture. The wine finishes medium.

    Lots of charred wood.

    January 30, 2014 - Good expressive nose - some cedar and floral. Full feel, smooth. Drinking surprising well. Oak is subtle. Lacks complexity, but very good for price.

    August 5, 2013 - Still drinking great.

    June 17, 2013 - Dark Cab with a fruity nose. Cherry palate, meaty, simple with oak in check would go well with a variety of meals. Nice effort, not your everyday red with a decent finish.
