    April 8, 2014 - Really surprised how uninspiring this was. Especially given some reputable reviews out there. I just found this simple and boring. Uber polished tannins with virtually no grip, tart cherry, fresh tilled soil and some vanilla on the finish. Wished for more flavor and complexity for this price point.

    Consumed at at cellar temp: 60°-65° F. Friends don't let friends drink red wine at room temp!

    March 27, 2014 - Currants, pomegranate notes and violets jump from the glass in this beautifully structured and balance wine. From the deep magenta color to the rich and varied flavors of mocha, cassis and sweet oak, to the long and generous finish with notes of cherry cola and cedar, this wine strikes all the right chords and doesn’t pull any punches.
