    February 2, 2016 - Similar note to previous. Drinking beautifully.

  • tomoem Does not like this wine: (85 points)

    December 1, 2015 - Deep garnet color, aromatic at first and then seemed to fizzle. The palette was quite light almost watery in texture. Some cherry flavor but muted. No lingering flavors at all

    May 18, 2015 - - Crimsom color and aromas of cherry, chocolate, cloves and vanilla. It's balanced and has flavours of cherry - Drinking nicely

  • woofy Likes this wine: (92 points)

    March 15, 2015 - This wine comes out great, but one or two swirls in the glass really opens up. Nice bouquet, deep dark, and a smooth as can be. Enjoy.
