    October 13, 2019 - Last of 3 purchased sub $20 and these have been screaming deals. Soft, lively, full of fruit, flowers and enjoyment.

    May 27, 2019 - PnP, consumed over several hours. Really like where this is at with lovely floral, violet and roses on the nose. Palate brings the floral aspects and adds cranberry and blackberry to the mix as well. Spouse senses some stewed berries but I don't get any of that but maybe a soapy quality.

    May 9, 2019 - Drank off the pop and pour. Cloudy ruby-garnett color. Floral nose brings violets, roses, and potpouri. The palate is medium-light with good weight on entry, bringing cranberries, blackberries, cloves, and cinnamon notes. This is tangy and crunchy yet velvety and smooth, resulting in an ultra-short finish. Great country wine. Drink now. Technical score: 89. Enjoyment score: 91.

    February 1, 2019 - Picked up 3 of these sub $20 and thought I'd try one. Fantastic floral and violet nose, delicate red fruits with a little pepper, lively (but not overpowering) acids. Really appreciate this. Super QPR.
