    January 26, 2012 - Received as a gift and opened as we needed something to cook with. Nose of stewed red fruit. Dark red fruit on the palate with a touch of olive. Clearly not from top quality grapes. Acceptable wine - certainly many worse at this price point. But given the choice between this and beer - I'm going with beer.

    November 20, 2011 - Rich in color, lots of cab on the nose with a little bit of earth. Tastes very fruit forward with medium tanins and some spice. Good flavor, but a little rough around the edges. Could have used a little more time lying down I suspect.
