    November 28, 2013 - Fine wine that drank well with traditional Thanksgivivg fare. Black cherry in color. Chocolate, cherry and earthy on the nose and palate. Smooth and balanced palate.

    February 23, 2011 - A clear day-bright wine with medium plus concentration and aromas of blueberry, stewed black cherry, and spice notes. The palate follows with dark satsuma plum, spice and chocolate notes. A very well made wine, that will drink nicely over the years to come.
