    December 28, 2014 - Dark ruby, mild nose of rose, black fruit, with a mild dose of earthiness and minerality. Smooth and soft, this wine is ready to drink. Not sure how much it will age but most likely won't fall off for a year or two.

    December 7, 2014 - Sexy, opulent, but structured Merlot-dominant blend, with a tiny bit of modern Left Bank character and depth that allows it to transcend the varietal boundaries and avoid simply monolithic grandeur. This is as good as it gets under $100. from Pomerol.

    July 7, 2014 - Open and let it sit for 30 minutes it will open beautifully on the glass, you will be able to discover this sexy Merlot with every sip.

    July 4, 2014 - The bottom line: this wine has gusto with a good deal of longevity to carry it through for at least five more years. The color is a deep ruby with a tinge of brown at the rim. The nose is a bit tight showing leather, raw meat, violet, and dark berries. The palate boasts cherry, dark berries, and licorice but the fruit is not overbearing. Add to that black pepper, mushroom, some violet, and green pepper. What makes it for me is the hint of bitterness, the well balanced acidity, and the firm yet silky tannins that give the wine gusto. Enjoy it with a nice piece of grilled meat. An excellent companion to a well-seasoned pepper steak.

    May 10, 2014 - Found this to be a little mondern in that it was a fruit driven wine. Dark cherry / cassis with a little leather. Everything was nicely put together but the nose was a little tight and overall not real complex. Solid at the $30 I recently paid for it. Will hold my other ones for a while to see if anything shakes out.
