    May 19, 2016 - Pop 'n poured and consumed in one evening. Really nice, medium-weight new world Grenache. Bright red fruit with a little spicy oak accompaniment. Drinking very well now but I'd probably wait another year or three for the oak to fully integrate.

    January 20, 2016 - PNP, Good dark fruits on the nose and palate, a little turpintime on the nose but in a good way. A little hot from the alcohol and could have used a bit more structure, not much in the way of tannins. Overall a solid wine and very good QPR.

    January 10, 2016 - Ampelos Tasting Room. My favorite wine of the tasting. Very good balance and flavors in a medium-weight grenache. One of the better new world grenaches that I've tasted.

    November 22, 2015 - Nice nose of fruit and flowers, palate was surprisingly dark fruit with hints of spices, finish was of moderate length but not as full as I would have liked - drank miore like a mid-level Syrah

    July 24, 2015 - Floral and citrus notes on the nose and hints of pepper and other spices with smooth tannins. Overall, this is a great glass of wine for the 35$ price tag
