    May 13, 2016 - It is definitely coming down from its peak. Drink now if you have any bottles. The wine needs to be decanted for 2 hours before one can appreciate it. It has herbal notes with a port like nose. Very herbal on the palate with little depth.

    November 27, 2013 - One of the worst wines I've ever smelled. Almost couldn't get myself to taste it. And I wish I hadn't.

    October 1, 2013 - Brown Bag Wine Dinner at Two Chefs - Double Blind (TWO CHEFS, MIAMI, FL): The wine looks Garnet colored. The legs are Fast. It smells like Phenolic, and Ethyl Acetate. The body is Medium. The wine has Coarse texture. The wine finishes Short. Alvaro's wine. This is obviously an OFF VINTAGE for this wine. Alvaro's prior experience and other CT notes reflect the VA. Surprisingly, I have the 2000 Vintage, one of which I drank 18 months ago and I gave it a 94, and noted it was my Wine of the Month.

    May 11, 2012 - Terrible. Nail polish nose. Heavy, porty, raisiny palate without any of the good stuff that actual port provides. Yuck!

    December 30, 2011 - This bottle did not do well with age. It was reminiscent of port, but without the lingering sweetness. Drinkable, but only marginally enjoyable.
