    February 26, 2014 - Great Rioja and good pairing with lamb burgers.

    February 10, 2014 - I love it, even at this obviously tender age. Great balance, even though the acid, fruit, tannin, and oak are still driving in four separate lanes. Leather, chocolate-covered dark cherry, rhubarb make a wonderful palette. There's a little bit of greenness there, too, but it didn't detract. Just as beguiling on night two. Hold to 2016.

    October 29, 2013 - Nice wood spice, plum, dark fruit and cedar on the nose and palate. Pretty, simple and easy to enjoy. Will hold.

    October 27, 2013 - excellent QPR. Very balanced if not all that complex. Finish is nice with firm tannins but a bit short. Haven't had anything this good at this price point in quite some time. Need to buy more.

    September 13, 2013 - Spanish Wine Tasting and Dinner at BDV (1855 and Bistro du Vin): Strong sweet nose. On the palate, dark fruits, blackberries, and cassis. Firm tannins and full-bodied. Will go well with food.
