    March 21, 2018 - Impressive zin. Black raspberries, blueberries, and licorice in the nose. Black cherries, blackberries, and some spice in the flavor. Well balanced wine with a medium to long finish.

    March 6, 2018 - Beautiful ruby color. Lifted, almost candied nose of raspberry and strawberry. Palate of leafy brambles, sous bois, strawberry evolving to a more blackberry dark fruit after a few hours with a touch of toasted oak; some smooth tannin and nice acid. Light in color and full in body, smooth and well balanced. Showing fabulously. Paired with turkey burger and cheddar.
