    December 16, 2018 - This is a dense, dark wine with slightly sweet blackberry and currant fruit. It has a medium finish and smooth tannin.

    March 4, 2018 - As always, a top wine from Gallo doesn't get the respect it should. Put this wine under a different label and the average note would probably go up 3 to 5 points. In fact, I feel this is VERY similar in style to a Caymus Special Selection from the same vintage (93.3 on CT). This is rich, very structured with quality tannins and gobs of blackberries/raspberries. For the price, this is impressive. Most importantly, it brings pleasure. 222 barrels made. Forget that it's from Gallo and enjoy!

    January 25, 2018 - An excellent wine, vinturied/decanted, this certainly needs air, dark ruby in color, ripe and full on the nose,
    young if anything, but drinking good right now.
    Cellar for a few more years.
    A re buy.

    November 9, 2017 - Bottle has been open for almost 3 hours and first two glasses were poured thru a Venturi. It is still as tight and tannic as when first opened. There does seem to be some dark fruit buried in there but it’s almost impossible to tell. I will try again tomorrow night and hope a full day open helps. If it’s going to be any good I suspect it’s years away.

    September 20, 2017 - Decent but not a 93. Only able to drink 1/2 of bottle due to gastritis. Try again to be fair
