    June 30, 2016 - Wow! This has come a long way!!! Tree bark, porcine, petit barnyard, and ample, succulent acidity and a punching long finish.....Some may mistake or consider this corked, but to me, its in full glory. Drink or hold....

    June 4, 2016 - Very similar to bottle of a few months age. Remarkable wine for $20-ish.

    January 15, 2016 - Very typical of this wine in so many other vintages. Medium+ body, dark and red fruits, good acid, definitely some grip, nicely balanced. As always, good QPR. Big fan of this winery and this wine.

  • flussier Does not like this wine: (85 points)

    December 24, 2015 - Couleur bourgogne aux arômes de boisé et cassis. Assez léger pour un Rioja. Bonne amertume mais un peu trop boisé à mon goût.
