    September 5, 2012 - Ruby red. Nose of oak and red fruit that produces an almost candy like flavor. Very Californian in my mind. Same follow through on the palate. Not much complexity, lower than perfect acidity, but still pleasant with some persistence into a short to medium finish. Overall very enjoyable and as someone said below, lacking in spice. Imho - very typical well made Cali Merlot.

    July 7, 2012 - Medium dark and opaque. Nose of smoke and oak, although not overdone. Blackberry and plum in mouth. Medium finish. Nice change.

    May 13, 2012 - Dinner W/ Dave, John, & Stacy in Kingston with BBQ burgers, mushrooms, onions, great beef, all the condiments. Nice-- the wine fit nicely in with all of these after a one our decant to take the edge off. Solid 88-89'er. Pretty consistent all the way through, though I did notice a lot of earthy feel to it-- not in a real negative way; just unusual. Plenty of fruit for taste, low on spices; but a thoroughly pleasant taste from beginning to end.
