    January 10, 2016 - I had hope that letting this sit for a year or two would have helped this wine. No such luck. Bitter and stemmy. Some cherry flavors but just not a good wine. Will try again in a year but will cook with it for now. If you are going to attempt it, let it breath a bit or even dec ant.

    April 20, 2014 - Much better than I expected. Popped and poured, served with friends and a homemade chicken pie. Rich, red fruits and smooth velvety finish. Nice mouthfeel for the meal. Would buy again

    October 9, 2013 - Bramble and bright nose with lots af alcohol. Need to age/mature, disappointing but has promise. Tart with grassy tones. Earthy with raspberry.

    September 29, 2013 - Lighter bodied meritage. The nose is loaded with fruit: bing cherry, blueberry, mint and bit of heat that blows off after an hour or so. On the palate, I get mostly cherry with a bit of plum, but what i best is the smooth mouthfeel and the well integrated tannins. Stiil, it's good, but not outstanding, though it's not a bad QPR at $17.
