    September 18, 2015 - A very decent medium bodied, elegant fruity and not too complex Washington Merlot. Not too much oak too. Great cool Label! European feel wine.

    June 23, 2013 - Served this wine with grilled lamb chops. A nice food pairing. Not the most complex of wines, but fruit forward and fun.

    March 20, 2013 - Bordeauxesque as previously noted. Very enjoyable.

    March 13, 2013 - Smoky dark berry and plum scents, with leather, spice, and earth. Dark chocolate and French roast flavors. Way more wood and spice on the palate than fruit, but that’s not a bad thing as its very well made. The coffee is a bit overwhelming but I like it.
