    April 30, 2015 - Under screwcap. This has aged beautifully. Was worried that this would be too big, but it is exceptionally well-balanced. A bit of barnyard/funk, brambly fruit, deep, complex, very long, complete finish. At $45 on release in 2006 this wasn't cheap, but I wish I had bought more.

    March 9, 2015 - This Rhone blend is comprised of 45% Mourvedre, 30% Syrah and 25% Grenache. In the glass, the wine is a cloudy ruby with an enticing aroma of maraschino cherry. On the palate, the wine, is medium to full-bodied with the same maraschino cherry, as well as licorice, baking spices and muted oak. It has a medium-length finish and is perfectly integrated; so, I would imbibe it now rather than waiting for it to improve in the cellar. Absolutely delightful, and an incredible hit at the last party I attended. Unlike other Villa Creek wines, this vintage came with a screw cap, which probably explains its vibrant attack even after 11 years in the bottle.

    September 29, 2012 - BLACK CHERRIES, RASPBERRIES, AND SPICE IN THE NOSE WITH CHERRIES, LICORICE, AND EARTHINESS IN THE FLAVOR. A RUSTIC WINE WITH NICE LEGS AND A MEDIUM TO LONG FINISH.

    March 15, 2012 - Sadly, I think this one has gone over the hill. Very little fruit left and a bit of menthol going on. It was ok but not what I expected.
