    June 25, 2016 - Drank this in a mini-vertical with the 2011. The '12 shared a lot of the same flavors I got from the '11, roasted bell pepper, mushrooms, lavender, black cherry, cranberries... However the fruit was much more forward facing, I really tasted the fruit immediately before the earthy tones took over for a nice finish. I personally preferred the '11 slightly more, but I score them both the same. Renegade continues to kill it at these price points.

    October 22, 2015 - When this wine first hits your palette, you think it's going to be a fruit bomb (primarily red fruit) however then you get this surprising, wonderful earthy, mushroom quality on the finish. This is a crowd pleaser type of wine and I will certainly get some more if I can find it.

    August 21, 2014 - This seems better than my last bottle. Still a little awkward, but delivers some more interesting savory characteristics. Good value.

    July 30, 2014 - Great value. Served slightly chilled. Started with strawberry and kirsch and as it warmed/opened up showed more savory flavors of bacon, smoke and earth.
