    January 30, 2019 - This is drinking much better now than earlier reviews indicate. Pleasant perfumed nose. Dark purple ruby saturated color. Rich sweet berry and cassis fruit with no jamminess. Medium/full bodied. Nice balance of acidity and tannins give structure to the flavorful fruit. Best after an hour or so of airing. Delicious now, I doubt this will get better but it should hold for 2-3 years at least. One of the best wines at this (modest) price point I can remember.

    August 5, 2018 - After aerating and decanting, then waiting almost an hour, this wine finally showed some of its potential. Didn’t taste like much at first, but after plenty of time opening up, was much better. Full of red fruit.

    September 9, 2017 - 9/9/2017 SPC Class Wk2: Deep ruby color. Moderate aroma intensity: red cherry, blackberry, eucalyptus. Dry, medium-bodied with lively acidity and soft tannins. Flavors of blackberry, and smoke/tar. Well-balanced and really paired well with braised beef & mushrooms.

    May 6, 2017 - Quite well balanced and integrated.

    this is stunning for a $10 wine.

    Light fruit on the nose with red fruits

    medium body and tannins -just-drinkable

    April 25, 2017 - Medium to deep ruby red. Nose has notes of dark berries and a touch of spices. Solid tannins (6/10) and medium bodied. A touch of anise and herbs on the palate underneath all the tight dark berries. Medium plus to long finish. Drink till 2021. Great value at just over $10.00 a bottle.
