    July 24, 2016 - The wine has medium acidity. The wine finishes medium. The wine looks purple colored. The legs are slow. There is light sediment in the bottle. The wine has smooth texture. Very nice. Will try again next year.

    July 12, 2016 - Believe it is at its peak now. Medium nose of black cherry, plum, licorice, vanilla and chocolate. Balanced, richly flavored, velvetly palate with very fine tannins. Delicious wine.

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

    May 13, 2016 - felt like it was a bit oxidized, two bottles in a row, still have four left, maybe they'll be better
