    August 23, 2015 - Agree with previous tasters - only thing I would add is that this wine improved significantly with age.

    January 3, 2015 - Sour cherry, sage and wild berry on the nose; sour black cherry dominates the palate. Some of the same characteristics as more expensive Sonoma Coast luminaries (K-B, Hirsch), but lacks their depth and complexity. Good QPR.
