    July 4, 2019 - Brought a bottle to a 4th of July party. I wasn't particularly impressed by this wine after trying it last year, but either the rest of the entries were very mediocre or this has improved. Good QPR! I would still give it plenty of time for breathing before trying a sip. Good party wine.

    November 21, 2018 - Gave it plenty of air, which helped blow off the vanilla notes on the nose and palate, but I still can’t say it was an enjoyable wine. Didn’t seem to have the acidity I equate with Barbera and was more purple fruited than red. Disappointing. I have two more and will give them more time in the cellar (or cook with them, if that doesn’t help).

    August 10, 2018 - Decanted 1 hr, opaque ruby color, nose a bit hot, med mouthfeel, long finish with some spice/heat, simple quaffer for $10, will wait another 6 months to try again.

    July 10, 2018 - Nice nose, but the wine failed to live up to this initial perception. Fruit forward with some spice and a lot of smoke. A jumble!
