October 27, 2019 - I have been a little disappointed in this wine because past bottles never seemed to live up to the WA rating of 93. However, it has really come around. I put a 92 on this bottle, and I might be short changing it a bit. This one is in a great drink window right now. Pull the bottles and enjoy.
May 11, 2019 - It had been almost two years since my last bottle of this, and I was a little apprehensive about its condition. Well, it is and was holding up just fine. Very well balanced and fairly rich, with a decent finish. To me, it's kind of a generic red wine, but it's a damn good one and a terrific value.
March 9, 2019 - Dark berried aroma. Spicy berry almost zin like.
April 23, 2018 - Well still doing great right out of the bottle. Glad to have 2 more left!!
February 17, 2018 - Surprisingly good after sitting in the back on the wine store/liquor store's shelf for this long. I wasn't sure that it would be okay still, but it still had good fruit and was nicely balanced. It's time to drink them up now, in my opinion, unless you've had yours stored in a temperature-controlled environment.
January 7, 2018 - Deep and dark and inky. still lots of life left. can age more yet
October 13, 2017 - Similar to prior bottles......good for the price point, but not up to some Pro Ratings.
August 24, 2017 - A heavy hitter. Aromatic with dark berries, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Deep purple with several layers. Fantastic wine for the price. May last several days opened and well cared for.
July 28, 2017 - loved this - rich and delicious. even though it's on the high end of ABV at 14.9%, still smooth as silk. great flavor and great quality. could go on for another 3-5 years easy...
June 9, 2017 - Gave this a 3 hour decant and it was very approachable after that.
Classic PS characteristics and good QPR.
