    August 26, 2013 - Very smooth and well integrated. More fruity and less spice than typcial Shiraz.Very easy drinking but did not have a lasting finish with a kick.

    September 21, 2012 - nose: dark cab sauv like, plum, dark fruits. High alcohol content, black cherry, tobacco leaf, and red gummy bear. Taste: Nice cola, mocha taste. Some plum and blueberry. Medium body wine, with mellow tannine. Oaky and spike of alcohol. Cherry and cherry candy drop. Lacks a second half of the wine. Disappointing end game. Lacks depth.

    September 18, 2012 - Plums. Black cherry. Well balanced. Enjoyed this wine immensely. Had it with stuffed peppers but would have been perfect with medium rare beef or lamb.
