    September 10, 2021 - Excellent produit merlot des ÉU donc un peu plus sur le fruit mais belle balance d'acidité, palais sur la cerise rouge et mûres, finale avec soupçons de cuir.

    August 17, 2021 - A bit ripe, but it paired well with duck. 14.7% ABV.

    August 6, 2021 - Tasted at 2 hours decanting and it was sharp and medicinal at the front with a quick dip to a more pleasant tart cherry flavor with light oak that was very thin but lingering. 3 hours decanting was much better but still uninspiring

    June 15, 2021 - No formal tasting notes, but good wine for the price.

    May 27, 2021 - Deep ruby-garnet. Muted nose of forest floor, cherries, raspberries. Medium bodied, a bit flabby. Entry starts off herbal and medicinal. Becomes a fruity on the mid palate with tart cherries. Medium-plus round tannins. Short finish with herbs and black pepper.

    This is drinkable but very uninspiring.
