    January 16, 2012 - Great red fruit aromas with a character of slightly sweet spice. Slightly floral. Red candied cherry fruit flavors, very pretty and charming. Good minerality and acidity gives plenty of energy and lift from middle to finish. Very easy to enjoy.

    February 23, 2010 - I liked this a lot. Rough around the edges in some ways, big and brooding, but in a good way, not because the fruit is overpowering. It's not. Hard to describe. It's not Syrah-like or Bordeaux-like either. If I had to try to peg it, it might be more like a Mourvedre with nice structure and dark red fruit and good tannins. This is nice to drink on its own, but it as also good with a red curry chicken. Different in a very good way

    January 25, 2010 - this bottle wasn't up to the previous three. a slightly bitter finish. maybe off?

    January 21, 2010 - dark plum in colour, earthy, funky nose with a slight chemical tinge, nice ripe blackberry and dark plum fruit with a plummy currant finish. Lots of rustic complexity. Nice.
