    March 9, 2016 - A nice wine, but the acidity outshines the fruit. Cranberry, raspberry, and a touch of cola.

    April 11, 2015 - Medium body, flavorful.

    March 12, 2015 - Agree that at least a brief decant was helpful at this point. Wine has cherry and earthy flavors with well integrated oak. Sharp, acidic, with tight focus and a rather short finish. I recommend holding a little longer at this point. 91-93

    December 20, 2014 - Needed air, but supremely elegant and a great companion to pork arista. Cherry and earth and a fantastic backbone.
