    March 10, 2016 - Go West! Tasting (The QEII Centre, Westminster, London): Beautiful ripe juicy nose, smoke, spices, black cherry and berry, nice and smooth palate, tea infused flavors, nutmeg, dry, less welcoming than the nose, a bit harsh med finish

    October 24, 2015 - Black ruby with notes of dark cherry, allspice, nutmeg, rosemary, thyme, and black pepper. Raspberry, black cherry and vanilla in the mouth. Well integrated alcohol - surprised it was as high as 15% - and plush tannin. Not very acidic, but enough to balance the wine.

    August 9, 2015 - Solid RRV Zin; sweet spice, vanilla, and dark cherry on the nose; palate is silky, sweet dark cherry and some darker fruit there as well, very good acid for freshness, reminds me of RRV Pinot in a way but just a tad heavier; juicy and tasty, like drinkability, not as good as the Highwire Vineyard; went well with the Korean short ribs.

    July 18, 2014 - very good balance of fruit, spice, and savory flavors a little flat on the finish though. Fell off some second day losing some of the delicious nuance flavors. Visited Hartford winery in the Russian River Valley last year and picked this wine after a tasting. May have opened too soon as WS has best drink window from 2015-2020. RP not rated, WS 91.
