    October 30, 2008 - drank over three nights. opened ~30 minutes prior to tasting first night and was rewarded with hint of fruit and smooth wine with meal. Second night was right out of the bottle and was very nice indeed. Still hint of fruit up front with smooth finish.

    September 28, 2008 - opened about 30 minutes prior to drinking with beef burgundy dish. still seemed a little too strong at the finish. maybe try again next year.

    December 6, 2007 - Great deal. Decant please or will be getting fiber with your wine.

    January 25, 2007 - Just popped and poured - should have decanted this was throwing lots of sediment.
    For a $12 wine this was full of interest. Good dark colour, slightly smokey, meaty currant and dark plum nose, hints of lead. Pretty complex for a "cheap" bordeaux. Tasty with nicely balanced acidity and soft dry tannins, good blackcurrant and plum fruit flavours. Excellent value.
