December 11, 2016 - Nice. Really quite nice. I wish it wasn't the last one in our cellar, although if we had any more, I would be drinking it soon.

October 19, 2016 - Spectacular merlot. Over the years, we have enjoyed Pride merlot (and their cab franc). The flavor profile is mocha, chocolate with a hint of berries and spice. The finish was smooth and silky..and, it paired superbly with dark chocolate (after dinner).

October 1, 2016 - Quite good, although there was a tremendous amount of sediment. Also, at this point I'm saying drink: no need to wait longer.1 person found this helpful Comments (1)
