    December 24, 2016 - Color is dark - opaque garnet that lightens to a rosy cranberry near the edge of the glass. Nose includes blackcurrant, cherry, oak, and a hint of licorice. Absolutely gorgeous on the palate - this is a smooth merlot with a lovely finish. One of my favorites.

    October 2, 2016 - This has all the right stuff except too young. Needs a few more years.

    August 19, 2016 - Drank the last bottle of this. In reviewing my last note from 2014, not much has changed...maybe a bit more integrated. Nice aromas upon opening (fully decanted) and wine had a nice palate, albeit a little short. We left the last half of the bottle out for several hours in the decanter - when I poured the last glass at the end of the evening, noticed a little heat. For me, this is maybe a $25 wine. Good at that price, but average at the $40 we paid.

    May 23, 2016 - - It's balanced with a medium body. Smooth texture with a short finish - Nice merlot. Requires some breathing time and then becomes silky smooth and fruit with a hint of caramel.
