    February 17, 2016 - A really delicious bottle of wine - quite light in color but nonetheless a beautiful red hue to hit; nice fruit up-front (I got quite a bit of cherry), with more structure in the middle and back and overall a great deal for the $21 I paid per bottle.

    February 15, 2016 - What a difference another year or so made in this wine. The nose has come alive, the flavors are smooth and intense. Lots of fruit, some spice, good finish. It would be hard to find a better 20$ bottle of wine. Should last at least another few years. The extra time in bottle totally changed my opinion of this wine. 92+

    December 28, 2015 - Not a pop n pour. I missed older notes about giving this wine time to breathe and simply poured without benefit of Venturi or time in a decanter. First taste was not a typical tightness, rather is was coarse and nasty. Opened up after 20 - 30 minutes of swirling in the glass. I will leave the remaining bottles to age a bit more before opening. Went well with pasta and tomato sauce.
