    May 13, 2019 - This is drinking entirely consistently with my last note from a few years ago, although the tannins are pretty integrated at this point. It's drinking great right now, and I think would be good through another year or two standalone like I'm doing tonight, or with burgers or steak sandwiches and such. 88-89

    December 19, 2016 - I concur w/ others in that this is a good QPR cab at the $14 I paid. Dense, opaque coloring with purplish ruby at the edges. Aromas of cassis, blueberry, plum, black cherry, dark chocolate, a smokey, toasty oak note, and graphite. Medium body, medium(+) acid and finish, lightly grippy tannins (I'm drinking this w/out food), and flavors of dark and dark red fruits, complimentary oak spice, and a touch of mineral. Mid-palate's a little hollow, but overall hard to complain here. Well done.

    July 11, 2016 - This is smoothing out and drinking even better now than 1-2 years prior. Delicious stuff.

    June 15, 2015 - Not sure about the low scores for this wine. I've been able to experience at least 4 vintages of this wine and each one is just simply good and reliable. They are never overly complex or sophisticated. But, what they are...are nicely balanced, highly drinkable, and a good blend of both old and new world wine making with some really nice nuances. Oak is just enough of a touch to give the wine some round creaminess on the finish to compliment the fruit. Excellent QPR. I'll continue to seek this out and purchase...even in tough vintages.
