    February 18, 2015 - Dark purple red with good hues. Showing a lifted aromas of raspberry, strawberry, cherry and violets. Palate is soft and smooth, with velvety tannins as well. It has flavours of dark fruits, raspberry and touch of toasty oak. This bottle still has plenty of fleshy fruits and primary notes. Very easy drinking and approachable. Just that the finish did not over deliver. That said this is a very likeable wine for casual drinking.

    September 29, 2014 - Unbalanced. Fruit and Acid not well integrated. Couldn't get through this bottle. Not enjoyable. Really unbalanced. sharp chocolate fruit and manupulated acid.

    April 4, 2014 - Wine Interest Group event - Dinner with Luigi's wines (Extra Space, Boon Keng): In a different style than Tasmorcan, good mix of fruits with some earthiness just started to emerged. Has some structure and finishing is good too.

    January 28, 2014 - Fresh, bright acidity. Strawberries, red cherries on the nose and palate. Refreshing. Great choice with foods or by itself. I should've bought a case instead on only 3 bottles...
