    September 8, 2019 - On the nose- Bright red fruits, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, plums, baked fig, red flowers, dark chocolate, baking spice, vanilla, cinnamon

    On the palate- Bright red fruits and strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, baking fig, red flowers and dark chocolate, baking spice and vanilla, with a hint of cinnamon on the end, this wine is drinking KILLER young, the palate is so lush and smooth and the tannins are perfect and silky, I see this wine drinking well over the next 7-10 years if not longer with no problem

    March 30, 2019 - A relatively weak effort for this wine. Lighter bodied than is typical for FG and not very complex. Pleasant, but I expect a lot more from this.

    January 7, 2019 - Smooth, easy, familiar aroma. Strawberry, deep red plum on second day of opened bottle. Much smoother than 1st day. Finishes nice silky smooth but not the most complex finish.
