December 29, 2018 - The wine got really good. Awesome blend.
April 4, 2018 - Overly paked, but has good fruit and delicious factor.
December 16, 2017 - Integrated fruit and soft tannins. Too much oak on palate however it blew off after a bit. Maybe better decanted to mute the oak. If the oak wasn’t so prominent at the beginning could pass as old world.
April 7, 2016 - Interesting but unusual. Something not quite right. Old world. Good tannins. Disjointed. Can't quite put my finger on it.
February 17, 2016 - Definitely not a fruit bomb. Big wine with prominent wood. Unique flavor profile.
December 23, 2015 - We thought this was lovely with ribeyes. Had a decidedly old world personality.
February 7, 2015 - Better than most from this part of the world and a great value. Good Pop n' Pour
Sight: Medium ruby with hints of purple
Nose: Cassis Pate-de-fruits, spearmint, freezerburn
Palate: Ripe, medium weight wine. Not overblown and not without acidity. Overall, as balanced as you can ask for at this price.
April 30, 2014 - dark red, in color. dark fruit, blackberry, plum, cherry, spice, earth, espresso, on the nose. high acid, medium tannins, on the finish.
March 17, 2014 - Weekly tasting group #111; A fully blind test with two whites as a starter. (@ AH): The bouquet is not very expressive, but there are dark berries, autumn forest and some dusty impressions. On the palate concentrated and juicy red as well as dark berries, some sweetness and menthol. Ok acidity and round tannin. Ok wine.
January 29, 2014 - Interesting! Definitely not a South American fruit-bomb. Good start. Aromas anf flavours alternated between oaky, spicy, fruity (dark red to black), and balanced. This must be what they mean when calling a wine "disjointed". I think it will come together with time, though. It seems to have the acid, tannin, and overall balance to let some of this stuff smooth out.
