    September 26, 2019 - Deep ruby red color with a nose consisting of smoke, blueberries, cherries, mint and pencil lead. Very nice layers of red figs, blackberries, black licorice and black peppercorns.

    September 21, 2019 - Excellent juice. Crossfire, named for the Stevie Ray Vaughn song is still singing. Coffee been on the sniff and deep chocolate on the palate. Couldn’t resist breaking open some dark 85% cocoa To pair. Still has some life but don’t wait much longer.

    May 10, 2019 - Still tasting strong at the end of its lifecycle. Nose is light to medium, but mouth is still very much full of fruit. Tastes of raisins, jam, fig. Tannic with a sweet light to medium finish.

    August 23, 2017 - Surprisingly good. Just pulled it from the racks and did a PnP. Best wine of the week (so far). If scoring 92-94.

    February 7, 2017 - A little too one dimensional for my taste. Despite 08 being a "ripe" year, the fruit source should have yielded better results. Would not buy again.
