    May 24, 2020 - Similar to the last 2 bottles. Nothing special but certainly drinkable with cherry, earth, spice, mild oak and vanilla. Meidum finish. 89 points

    November 11, 2019 - No detailed note, but surprisingly more complex and elegant than I was anticipating for the price point. Will definitely buy again.

    July 26, 2019 - Day 1: Similar to the last experience were it was tight and not showing a lot of fruit. Chocolate, spice, earth and underbrush. Medium finish. 87 points
    Day 2: Much more alive with cherry, raspberries, rose petals, earth, dark chocolate and black licorice. Medium plus finish and adds a hint of tobacco. Significantly better which says heavy decant if consuming on day 1 only. 90 points

    February 14, 2019 - Big Top Closeout Deal Wines; 11/22/2018-2/24/2019 (Minneapolis/ St. Paul MN): Day 1: Pop and pour. Perfect serving temperature as it was pulled from the passive cellar. Something I always need to remind others and myself when drinking red wine. Not the most balanced effort featuring earth, leather, subtle fruits and spices. Shorter finish and just not that interesting. I am thankful I spent only $27 for this wine. Maybe more promise on day 2 or 3. 85 points
    Day 2: Better and more open for business. Perfume, floral, spices, chocolate, dark fruits and tobacco. Classic case of a wine that is not ready to drink but most would discard it. Day 2 shows a lot of potential and this could be a blockbuster Washington State Bordeaux Blend. 90+ points
    Day 3: Dust, chocolate, spice, dark fruits and floral notes. Medium plus finish and balanced. 90 points
    Recommendation: Hold until 2021 and beyond.

    December 28, 2018 - Ready to go right away. Smooth medium plus bodied with tannins almost fully integrated. Leathery redfruit, pepper, green bean, chalky cassis, and vanilla bean. Not the big fruit of Napa or the typical astringency I find in Washington. Nice for sub $50 in my opinion.
