February 2, 2016 - Fruit forward, jammy, a hint of spice. Soft tannins and a wonderful soft finish. Delicious!

January 18, 2014 - Beautiful fruit. Very well structured and balanced. Good finish. A very smooth wine that if decanted a couple of hours if drinking beautifully at present.

October 12, 2013 - Smooth, flawless to perfection, light pleasant fruity flavor with very subtle coffee, with light tannins which feels only after some aeration - and a disappointment. I expected so much more, jumping into higher price (for me) territory. Nice, but flat, jammed flavor lacking structure, complexity and richness. Flat taste reminding pleasant high-quality fruit punch. Absolutely no Cabernet Sauvignon signature character, and no cassis flavor mentioned by others. Very nice wine - if it would cost 8 times less.

August 17, 2013 - Family Winemakers, long time favorite red wine, nose of cassis and cherry, and Sumatra coffee, more of the same on the palate, medium body, structured, medium/long finish.
