    October 17, 2014 - Pale, sweet fruit on a light body, purple floral fruit, this seems a little simple at first thought natural and charming, but the depth builds as it warms and gains darker fruit notes and cola and tart berries and spice.

    October 13, 2014 - PnP. Served a bit too warm. Quite dark in the glass. Aromatic, expressive nose of ripe red fruit, rhubarb pie, baking spices, vanilla. Medium bodied, smooth, sweet and tart red fruit and lots and lots of spice with a finish of tart fruit and oak. A solid wine even at this age. Drinks above its price.

    August 26, 2014 - It hit the spot when served chilled on a warm summer evening. Nice blend of flavors, just a little edge, with ample smooth tannins.

    March 7, 2014 - Solid and straightforward. Nice, but I was hoping for more given Banshee's track record.

    January 17, 2014 - Color is garnet. Moderately aromatic. I get hit with strawberries and spices (vanilla) and I get some earthy notes after it opens up. Has a smooth finish but not very persistent . It definitely attacks with a spicy bite. Moderately crisp (+) with low tannins. Medium bodied. For the price, its a good but I prefer the Meiomi Pinot over this on taste and price.
