    March 7, 2007 - Great nose of black fruit, chocolate and coffee. Was expecting more complexity. Tasted black fruit, a little on the "fake" side...kind of sugarfied.

    March 3, 2007 - Tried for first time on 2/12/07 at restaurant. Amazing nose for a $15.00 bottle. Deep currant and plum flavors lasted throughout meal. The Syrah gave it its body and the Merlot muted the tannins. Splendid wine for the price; purchased 3 bottles to go. Drank two over the last couple of weeks; consistently good.

    November 20, 2005 - Day 1 - Although this is a blend of Cab, Merlot and Petite Sirah, the nose was overwhelmingly Cab. Loads of cassis and currant. Mouth feel was medium bodied with flavors of dark fruit, chocolate and coffee. Some heat on the finish. Not much tannins. Very enjoyable wine for $16.00.

    Day 2 - Same notes from Day 1. Good QPR.
