We decanted the wine for 25 minutes and could not wait any longer. Poured like Jimmi Hendrix purple haze with out the haze. Dark, ruby color, beautiful. First sip was big and jammy, smelled like leather, stone fruit, buck cherry, I mean black cherry, not the band. It made me quote Shakespeare from Sir John "Plumpjack" Flagsaf...

Cheers!

Reminded me of Brach's chocolate covered cherries I used to eat with my grandmother, Anna. The wine had a long finish, decant 1 hour before drinking. Wine opened up with each sip and swirl of the glass! Paired with Kenny’s Zinfandel braised beef short ribs and rutabaga gruyere cheese puree. Fabulous!

Enjoyed this wine. Was surprised as I dropped this club due to what I felt were marginal wines. Beautiful color and on the nose were allspice or cloves and rasberries. The body was very nice for a pinot and the palate offered more of the allspice or cloves--could not distinguish--with a long finish of rasberries and a touch of smoke.

There are a lot of wines on the market for $30 that fare better than this one. It is a decent wine, but the finish is non existent. Not bad, but simply will not buy again. If you are looking for a good price point table wine, Chateua St. Michelle from Washington (insert their wine here) is a far better value prop and under $20.00.

I first tasted this at the winery and enjoyed, so I bought a few bottles. My next bottle was at home and from a price point perspective is worth it, (wine club discount), however the first bottle seemed to have more lemon than I prefer. Still a decent wine, but I missed the lack of grassiness? that I prefer in an SB.

89 points for an $18 bottle of wine. This wine is and always will be made as an off dry wine, with a bit of residual sugar, typically from muscat I believe. It is our go to wine for any shellfish with a remoulade sauce, which is how we enjoyed it..with shrimp remoulade. The sweetness offset the spice of the sauce and then the tropical fruits provided a very pleasant finish. A great value paired properly.

Opened and decanted for one hr. Black cherry, plum?, and a I think licorice on the nose. I found the wine well structured with a long finish although the mid palate might have been a touch light. It finished so beautifully i can easily forgive the slight mid palate transgression. Nice notes of toasted oak, cedar and leather on the finish. Still worth the wait for me as I bought it on release. I will however drink the last bottle in my cellar within 3 years. Still, an absolute beautiful wine.

Very dark color. Great nose of chocolate and black cherry. Hits the palate with big flavors of currants, blacberrry and cherry. Notes of cocoa and vanilla mid palate and finishes with a bit of black pepper. A really nice "alternative" wine.
