    April 13, 2012 - Fruit forward. Medium-light tannins which leant it to our drinking it on its own.

    The wine looks Garnet colored. Tastes and smells of strawberries and balck currents.

    January 17, 2012 - Nice, nice, nice. Nice aroma, not too bold. Fairly balance with lots of fruits and berries.

    January 3, 2012 - Average daily drinking wine. Nothing special. Plenty of fruit with raspberries being the predominant flavor. Borderline fruit bomb. Not much else to this wine, but a decent balance of tanins. Just enough to keep it interesting.

    December 11, 2011 - As per my last note. Big and rich wine here. Full bodied and tasty. Drinking well now.

    November 25, 2011 - Bought another bottle @ Deluca - 26$ - see my prior notes. Nose has deep comfortabele,warm qualities of dark berry fruit. Palate is full bodied, light on acid/tannin - lots of dark, but slight brooding fruit. Long finish with lightly smoked oak/vanilla qualities...the oak bothered me a year ago, seems more meelowed now, either the wine or palate is changing...!
