    May 4, 2018 - Another solid bottle. Good peppery cab franc blend, but with the balance of the merlot. Nice wine.

    July 31, 2015 - On first opening, it was all meaty, beaty, big and bouncy, and more than a little stinky. I gave it a day, vacu-vined on the counter, and on nights 2 and 3 it was completely different and very much improved. Slightly cloudy dark crimson, the nose was sweet blueberry, oak, and fresh earth. Medium to full bodied, plums, blackberries, black cherries, well integrated tannins, tobacco, good acid, and a long chocolaty finish. A great value.

    September 12, 2014 - I just like this. Thrilled that this is a cab franc forward wine with all of the accompanying pepper and fruit. Solid.
