    February 17, 2012 - It was a nice blend and I do like blends. Nothing exceptional, but good.

    January 11, 2012 - The first sip of this wine gave a strong recollection of cherry cough syrup. But I decided to give it a chance, ignored it for awhile and tried again after it sat in the glass. Big improvement. Still had definite dark cherry but no longer syrup-like. An interesting and unique Rhone style blend from the lower Columbia Valley, though more fruit forward than its French cousins.

    December 5, 2010 - Tart cherry and cranberry on the nose, red tart fruits on the palate. Soft silky tannins. Vanilla and toasty oak on the finish.

    January 26, 2010 - Decent wine, but nothing to distinguish it. Would not seek this wine out.

    January 2, 2010 - Great French-style red blend. Had again and it's even better when it opens up (or use an aerator) and with food. Excellent for the price point. Hard to find outside the Pacific NW. Worth asking your local wine steward if they can get it.
