    March 31, 2013 - Very fruity nose. Good color and clarity. Easy to drink, not terribly complex, but not overly simple either.

    January 26, 2013 - After breathing for about 20 minutes (I'm not terribly patient), I found the smell to be a bit light with some floral essence to it. The taste was plush and soft with overtones of chocolate and berries with very slight acidity in aftertaste. A nice wine, it would probably fare better with a bit more time to breathe.

    March 4, 2012 - - Violet color and aromas of black pepper, black currant and smokey. It's balanced and has flavours of chocolate and coffee with a medium body. Leathery texture with a medium finish - A bit of heat on he palate from the alcohol a very spicy element. I would give it another year but drinking pretty decent right now.
