May 28, 2021 - Deep ruby. Light aromas of grape stem and smoke. Imbalanced. Sour scides and drying tannins. Some plum and apple flavor. Lingering finish.
May 26, 2021 - dark black cherry fruit with a long dusty tannic finish which I love. Very enjoyable and seems like it will continue to be good for several more years
March 21, 2021 - Full bodied, big fruit, dark inky...POP
February 11, 2021 - Loved it!!!!
December 21, 2020 - Somehow I expected more of a character emerging from that massive bottle. Nevertheless, an enjoyable wine.
December 12, 2020 - Very enjoyable fuller-bodied wine that shows intense black fruits and blueberry, pencil shavings, red pepper, spice, campfire smoke, vanilla, and roasted jalapeño from a 15% addition of Cab Franc. Could have used a modest decant rather than pop and pour.
October 25, 2020 - Good flavor and depth.
May 20, 2020 - $25
May 14, 2020 - not as robust as I hoped
April 17, 2020 - Same taste profile as before - needs a decant, easy drinker. However, aggressive pricing is pushing this out of the "good qpr" range. I bought a case on sale for $12.50 per bottle last year at a time it was hovering in the $20ish range in most stores. But, I've seen it recently for over $30.
