    March 6, 2020 - Fantastic bottle of wine. I had it buried in the cellar for about 5 years letting it rest and blossom... I let it breathe for about 1 hour and it was amazing. I only wish I purchased more!

    February 28, 2020 - Color: Purple
    Nose: Floral, Earthy, Blackberry, Sanguine
    Taste: Bright and Fruit Forward with Heavy Blackberry and Earthy Undertones; the Middle Rounds our to Some Nice Sanguine notes; Polished Tannin Structure and A Long finish of Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries that Brings you Back for More
    Comp’s: Pina D’admo and Valley Floor Fruit wines; So much purity; Great on its own or with a Several Course Meal (Meat Friendly!) or a Special Occasion Situation; Competes well into the $100 range for wines; Great QPR for the Vineyard

    November 23, 2019 - Decanted for about an hour. Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, consistent with previous note, solid fruit - Plum & Cherry with cedar and cinnamon stick.Medium-bodied with very smooth soft tannins and well balanced with vibrant red and black fruit flavors, with a long fruity finish. As Parker said "a Super Second". One of the last vintages made by Denis Malbec.

    October 26, 2019 - Absolutely delicious bottle... I waited several years to open this one, and glad I did. After sitting out to breathe for 1 hour, the wine opened up and was a smooth and easy drink. Love it.
