    October 5, 2016 - Last bottle and really sad to see them go, delicious spicy red fruit earth and great acidity. Fantastic with tri-tip.

    July 1, 2016 - Rich fruit with nice spice and earth, silky smooth and balanced. Medium finish of cherry leather and spice. Burned through 2 bottles tonight. Very nice

    February 7, 2016 - Deep ruby red. Nose is of cherries and plums, leather and spices. In the mouth is very well fruited, with cherries first, then you feel spices, vanilla and leather. Smooth tannins and great persistence. A very well made Chianti

    August 15, 2015 - shows off a nose of mint leaves, dried tobacco, cherry and musk, this shows off fleshy flavors of dried cherry, red licorice, cherry and dried herbs, rich with bright acidity, rich and elegant, long finish, I think that the oak will integrate with just a bit more time and make a superbly balanced CC, this was awesome with roasted herb chicken tonight
