    September 28, 2015 - Hard to complain at $10 here. Dense, opaque coloring with ruby at the edges. Nose is a little tight, but some black fruit, flowers, and minerals can be coaxed. Medium body and acid, medium+ finish, and flavors of dark fruits and minerals on the palate. The persistence somewhat makes up for the lack of complexity. Worked just fine with hanger steak leftovers for lunch and pre-gaming for the G. Love & John Hammond show tonight.

    July 9, 2014 - Probably not a terrific way to begin with but I drank it too late as there was no bouquet, the tannins had completely softened and within an hour there was no fruit left.

    July 29, 2013 - Very fair value, pleasant bouquet, very consistent flavor through the taste, tannins present but not over powering, worked well with flank steak

    August 18, 2012 - deep black fruits with good texture but still with some green tannins on the revisit in a few months
