March 28, 2018 - - Ruby color. Narrow texture.
November 17, 2017 - Plum on the nose, supple, concentrated and balanced with good fruit, fine tannins. Every vintage for the last five years has been good. Great value.
June 17, 2017 - Very modern, new world big pure style.
August 4, 2016 - The missus liked this so much she was ticked off I drank most of it. Almost a pop and pour, not much need for a decant. Purple and black fruit. Early on a back of the tongue finish that is a bit green. With some time, very pleasant smooth moderate to full bodied wine with a good finish.
December 25, 2015 - Has that younger new world fruity vanilla taste pairing pretty well with NY steak.. Lotsa complexity and full body. Will get better. Great value. Do not open for another year.
December 13, 2015 - Explosive nose of black fruits, graphite. Chocolate on the back of the tongue. An incredible value.
November 23, 2015 - Dark purple, minerals, bacon, deep black fruit, menthol, nose is just killer, lots of tannin, very good value.
August 16, 2015 - Smoother and sweeter than the the prestige. Very nice. Needs more time.
July 27, 2015 - Full on intense smooth fruit. Blueberries. Quite tart. Odd Jose at first but develops into floral.
May 2, 2015 - Teeth staining purple. The nose needed a little bit of coaxing but had black licorice, grilled meat and dark fruit. Not a fruit bomb but had multiple layers of blueberry, black raspberry, white pepper and finished with vanilla. Lots of tannins at this young age. Food helped cut this some. Might have benefitted from a little more acidity for my palate. Very nicely done for a wine of this price.
