September 1, 2014 - Indigo color. Raspberry and sour cherry on the palate with a touch of pepper and eucalyptus on the finish. Drinking well but plenty of years to go.

July 27, 2014 - Good fruit forward Cab with enough structure and dark fruit to taste well above its price point.

June 7, 2014 - Dark red color. Nice nose but a little tight. Opened after decant, but probably drank too soon

February 1, 2014 - A fruit-forward shiraz in cab drag that takes some time to show its true cab stripes. Even then, the fruit is a bit overwhelming, making this wine come off as a utility player – serviceable but lacking conviction and authenticity.
