    November 7, 2014 - Nice blend for the money. This is second bottle I have consumed and it tasted better the second time. Nice surprise.

    November 7, 2014 - Rich, ripe verging towards sweet and jammy, texturally smooth and plump, and stylistically modern with aromas and flavors of blackberry, fig/raisin, spice box, and vanilla/creamy oak. A nice mid-week/cocktail party/every day drinking kind of a wine.

    September 28, 2014 - Compared to the 2012... fruit is not punch you in the face excessive. However.... a white wood ash in the nose prevails over the usual mourvedre hallmarks. This is MO-dern. Acid, check. Tannic backbone, check. Oak.. on the dancefloor. Blackberry, blueberry... ash... more ash... and oh, a little barnyard, a little leather, a little blood, a whack! of minerality. I'll say... this is a crowd pleaser, if you're crowd tends to -not- overthink. And.. it needs a PunchYouInTheFace food.

    Oh, btw... it's improved by blending equal parts with 2012.

    September 17, 2014 - This had a rich, expressive bouquet of game, beef blood, black cherry, mint, herb and spice aromas. The palate was rich, slightly sweet and astringent with flavors of black cherry, mocha, cocoa, mint, herb and spiceā€¦great QPR!

    September 13, 2014 - Hints of clove and dark berries. A tad thick on palate.
