    November 1, 2019 - Surprisingly good and lighter than anticipated. Beautiful fragrant fruity nose. Tastes a bit like a Malbec mixed with some Pinot noir. Very short aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel too. Seems to be drinking really nicely now. There is no complexity to this wine. Serve judiciously!

    March 3, 2019 - One of the other tasters remarked this wine is a cross between a PN and a syrah. Very close, but a little more syrah spice. An unique varietal which should be tried if available.

    December 30, 2018 - Have had a few bottles of this wine over the last couple of years. Thought it was a field blend since the bottle doesn't identify the grapes. Checked out the outstanding Carlisle web site and found out that "Grand Noir" is a grape. Mostly used as a blending grape in France. Not sure it should stand alone. Not much fruit, a little too much tannin for my taste--but still drinkable.
