    February 24, 2020 - Decanted for about 1 hour and had no problems with the taste of the wine. While still fruity, it was not jammy. Mid-plus weight and I thought the Grenache easily shown through. Would not hesitate to drink again.

    February 14, 2020 - Agree with the recent reviewers - syrupy, treacly, new-world style. More syrah than grenache, with notes of black and blue berries, sweet maraschino cherry and ash on the nose and palate. Round and soft on the palate and finish, with lingering sensations of sweet fruit and sugar. Like eating a teaspoon of blueberry jam. Fail.

    November 20, 2019 - Way too jammy and not in a good way. Didn’t get better with age, either.

    October 5, 2019 - Tough to follow the Sabon, but this wine actually showed nicely. Yes, it's more modern in style. It's a high abv wine and it shows a little. It's very round, but it does have balance. It's vartietally correct. It's not generic, rather, shows what this region can produce when it tries. Well-done.

    March 17, 2019 - Very nice Grenache. Earthy but lots of red fruit, with a little heat.
