    April 16, 2019 - Rich, decadent, fruit forward blend with flavors of dark plum, mocha, chocolate and cassis. Big, yet structured and nicely balanced given its high alcoholic make-up. A true full throttle wine.

    March 23, 2019 - Very similar to 8 Years in the Desert and Caymus. The first touch on my lips reminded me of Caymus, while the darkness and finish reminded me of 8 Years in the Desert. No vanilla, but big oak. Candied nuts.

    March 3, 2019 - Very dark in the glass. Dark fruits and baking spice on the nose.

    February 16, 2019 - Drank in Kona. Quite good. Still pretty early on and needs to have some air. Opaque. Full-bodied rich fruit that keeps you wanting more. Certainly stands on its own. Big finish.
    Great labels too.

    January 19, 2019 - Not my preferred style. This is big, bold, dark red blend with no distinguishing characteristics beyond being big. It tastes fine, and is pleasant... but not something I would seek out. If you are a blend fan you will probably like it.
