    March 28, 2017 - An interesting wine. A mix of soft red fruits with both a savory and citrus component. Turns slightly bitter on the finish. Palate is soft and plush at this point, but stands up to tomato sauce fine. Difficult to describe, but somewhat like a blend of sangiovese, pinot noir, and gamay in one.

    January 22, 2017 - Brownish garnet-magenta. Fresh strawberry, earth, and cola nose, with fast legs. Light bodied, cranberries, sour cherries, light tannins, low acid, white pepper, and a red candy finish. Thin, fruity, one dimensional; a disappointment.

    January 12, 2017 - Decanted. A slight hint of yeast on opening gave way to a decent nose of tangerine, blackcurrant and wet stone. on the pallet the wine was smooth and full bodied with black fruit and lemon in the center. Finish was short and disappointing.

    November 15, 2016 - PnP. Black cherry, boysenberry, blueberry, garrigue aromas with some heat. One of us commented on a raisin note. On the palate this is smooth with medium acid and medium- tannin leaving fruit and a mouthwatering finish. The body is light to medium, and filling in some 30 minutes after opening. Color is deep purple fading to a red-purple edge. Legs and sweetness. Served with dinner of sauteed shrimp and tomatoes with roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli and carrots on the side. With the shrimp and tomatoes the fruit steps forward. With the vegetables the acid steps forward more with the fruit still present. The tannin is not very noticeable with the food.
