    June 19, 2011 - Nice Malbec. Fruit and leather with a nice finish.

    March 14, 2008 - American oak and choco cherry nose. some bitterness on the moderate tannin mouth. the flavors are confectionery and somewhat hollow with raspy tannin in the back that makes me think this was fined/filtered heavily? not horrible but pretty ripe/oaky and not terribly complex or delicious.

    October 31, 2006 - Aromas of raspberry, smoke and leather lead to balanced palate, chock full of fruit. Solid 30 second finish.
