    May 13, 2014 - Had two glasses at Papa Joe's on the rec of the bar tender. Interesting blend of 6 variatels with cabernet accounting for 62%. Very tasty and well balanced, especially considering it is a 2011. I have not found 2011 cabs to be that much less than previous vintages.

    April 5, 2014 - Nice fruit forward blend. Doesn't have the body of a typical Bordeaux blend (it's not exactly a Bordeaux blend)?and the Malbec and Syrah were rather pronounced, especially on the finish. Nice nose of purple fruit and spice, with a tannic finish. Light vanilla, boysenberry and dried plums on the palate. Really a lipsmacker for the first twenty minutes. A great conversation wine to pair with filet or braised meats!

    October 12, 2013 - Wow, this wine is a confounding blend. Nose is not shy, medium +, milk chocolate (mocha?) blue fruit. Medium + body, more mocha and blueberry fruit smooth tannins and nice finish. Just enough acidity to not finish flabby. Very impressive for twenty-seven bucks. Remarkably similar to AVV Cyrus blend, gets me more than half way there and for half the price!
