    October 21, 2010 - App: Dark purple red
    Aroma: Red berries
    Medium bodied and good structure. Caramelized oak on the palate.
    Good length

    June 5, 2010 - Raw smell from the decanter, but thankfully that blew off after an hour. Threw a sediment also, so needed a decant for several reasons. Sweetish smell, and floral, other than that nothing. On the palate tannic, acidic, short. Not a disagreeable wine, but absolutely nothing exciting either.

    Had lambchops with baked potatoes and mushroom stew with it, didn't do anything for the wine.
