    September 26, 2019 - Light color, guessed heavy Grenache and after checking was correct - 80%. It looks and feels light. Kind of a funky nose right off the bat. There is definitely fruit- cherry, kirsch. It's not a bad wine, but the overall profile is not impressive. 2 more bottles so will try more in a year or 2.

    July 16, 2019 - PnP from a 375. Medium ruby / purple mix. Nose has some heat from the alcohol (15%). Red plum and cherry mix on its nose. Nose begins to change in the glass after 15-20 minutes of exposure. Takes on a slightly more funky tone than the initial fruit notes. Full in body palate has very soft texture but good presence. First notes are pepper and it gets spicy on the late palate, where it loses a bit of volume. Dark-fruited, bitter chocolate. Quite voluptuous but certainly better (dare I say quite good) at the 2 hour mark than on the initial open.

    September 30, 2018 - Similar notes as Jeff. Love the balance of sweet cherry and spice.

    September 17, 2018 - Medium bodied, silky and fresh, this medium/full bodied charmer, with all its spicy, red cherry core is already drinking great today. The wine was made blending 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 6% Mourvedre and various other, assorted grape varieties.
