    September 21, 2019 - Outstanding that went great with Roasted Chicken. An excellent food wine that has great red fruits and a long finish. Could last a couple more years.

    February 7, 2019 - Paired beautifully with a Thai Chicken salad (with lots of jalapenos)! One hour decant. Gorgeous ruby red color, bursting with bright red fruits on the nose. Strawberries and raspberries forever, with perhaps a hint of licorice. Sophisticated. Glad we have a couple more.

    October 31, 2015 - Decanted 10 hours prior to tasting then consumed over two days. A broad shouldered style of Grenache with deep raspberry fruit and satiny texture. The structure is just noticeable but sufficient. This is a fruit driven wine with both swagger and finesse which lost nothing over the second day. Very enjoyable.

    July 11, 2015 - Really lively red fruit and pepper spice. Light weight on the palate but really tasty and fun.

    May 9, 2014 - Probably a bit too young to be drinking this wine, but we're just getting into the Rasas now and wanted to see how it was. More of an intense Grenache which was nice. Good and spicy. A touch of fruit characteristic. No detailed notes since we drank with cheese and conversation with an out of town friend. Good wine though nad glad we have another.
