    April 1, 2019 - Light bodied and fresh, this is a pretty fun wine to drink now with about 45 minutes of air time.Delivering lush juicy fruit forward wine with hints of vanilla and proper acidity. Good, but nothing really exciting to me, just a nice well built easy drinking wine to drink in the kitchen..Drink or Hold

    * Not a re-buy.

    March 25, 2019 - Ruby red color. Fruit is muted on the nose, oak, soil, red fruit. Bright palate, subtle red fruit flavors and oak. Medium plus acidity, medium plus alcohol, medium tannin. I like it, but not incredible. Easy drinking

    February 16, 2019 - A bit lighter in color than I expected. On the palate it starts a little thin but has a long finish of tart cherry.

    January 30, 2019 - Bu en succ.
    Beau vin, franc de gout et frais avec une belle complexité.
    Des cerises et un boisé bien matrisé, poivre et anis avec
    une belle acidité. Les tannins sont charnus et la
    finale bien longue et fait salliver.
    Très bon.

    January 19, 2019 - Still very young, better on day two (vacuum sealed). Light/medium ruby color. Some alcohol, minerality smoke and cherry in the nose. Medium body, sour cherry flavors with some underlying sweetness. Pleasant tannins (after a long rest) and a moderately long, slightly tart/tannic finish. Compulsively drinkable. Try again in a year or two, likely to improve. Had with Greek style smoked lamb and eggplant.
