    August 19, 2014 - Not quite where it was 2 1/2 years ago, but still enjoyable.

    April 7, 2014 - Agree with previous review except when he said it is about time to drink, it is full on ready. Tremendous improvement from a year ago. Drinks far above price.

    April 6, 2014 - This bottle the wine has opened up greatly. Lots of sweet mocha on the front with a bit of green pepper and vanilla. The finish is dry with underlying fruit, but a great long medium and dry black tea tannin.
    Its just about time to seriously start to consume this wine.

    January 22, 2014 - - Garnet color. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of blackberry, vanilla and diacetyl (butter) with a medium body. Round texture with a medium finish.
