    December 31, 2016 - Big and powerful, either at it's peak or a bit beyond. A fantastic wine but drink now.

    August 22, 2016 - Un bon merlot mais c'est un peu sucré et lourd. Je recommande de prévoir un plat sucré pour accompagner ce vin. QPR pas très intéressant.

    July 7, 2016 - Whoa, this is a big wine. Clocking in at 14.9% ABV, the alcohol is definitely noticeable, bordering on hot. The fruit is lush and ripe. The oak is well integrated. Had the ABV come in a little lower, this would've been a much more pleasant experience.

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of cassis, plum and black pepper. Flavors of plum,, black berries and black raspberries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, medium to full bodied. Drink over the next few years.
