    March 13, 2015 - Bright, light garnet. Aromatic nose of sour cherry, earth, Smucker's® Strawberry Jam, toast, vanilla (strawberry shortcake), spicy black cherry, and cedar. Big flavors of red cherry, leather, and red currant, with smooth tannins and nice acidity - a great food wine. Went wonderfully with pizza.

    August 18, 2013 - Popped and poured.

    Strong fruit with blueberry, sweet and sour cherry, spice and vanilla flavors.
    A little over-extracted and intense, but had with spicy pizza that worked well. Almost like a Zinfandel with intensity, but a different flavor profile.
    Over-all enjoyable - worked well with food.

    Good quaffer for having with pizza, barbeque or spicier meal.

    Nice QPR - would buy again.

    August 12, 2013 - Dark ruby color. Full aromas of cherry and blackcurrant and some dried spices. Full bodied and balanced with some good fruit and fine tannins. Medium finish.

    Well made wine with a distinct Tuscan character, slightly let down by the medium finish.

    June 14, 2013 - Wow - what a QPR revelation. Had by the glass at Mes Que in Buffalo. Seeking a case for everyday drinking.
