    October 18, 2013 - The nose was subdued -- may develop further given more time. Classic, delicious RRV on the palate, and ready for consumption. 88-89

    September 3, 2013 - Medium purple color, with lifting aromas of rose petals, black cherries, raspberries, and wet forest. The palate shows nice flavors of black cherries and strawberries with light spice and cola notes. Finishes with an attractive crispness and light tannins.

    February 17, 2013 - Falltacular 2013 (FMIII in the OC): Sandler does the best Keefer, I've tasted quite a few producers over the years and I've always preferred Sandler. I'm not alone in that opinion as a few winemakers felt the same way. There is lots of spicy raspberry on what would be described as fruit forward but there is excellent balance and a monster finish. Top 10 of the evening for me.
