    July 2, 2017 - Perfectly balanced. Plumb, cherry, vanilla and berry. Wonderfully full and deep, smooth finish.

    December 29, 2016 - I cant understand this type of wines, baked fruit with 15% ABV, this level of alcohol offsets the balance -sad cause there is potential...

    September 16, 2016 - Still kicking. In a good place - integrated with a bit of tension.

    July 19, 2016 - Deep inky garnet color. Cassis and blackberries nose with a touch of baking spice. Baking spices and berries on the middle palate. Interesting finish - almost thirst quenching.
