    August 26, 2017 - Similar to the 8/1/09 bottle but fully mature at this time. Delicious with my wife's chicken paprika.

    December 27, 2014 - Hot, even after 4 hours, but really nice pure grape taste, almost like frozen grape flavoring, but not as sugary. Smell is more aligned with what I associate with Granache, bright strawberry, but again with the ethanol. Some of the rounded, softer flavors I expect from an older wine, but still pretty tannic. Finish is ok fruit wise, but longer on the alcohol. Overall, while I liked the fruit juiciness, not worth $30, nor the cellar space.

    January 24, 2011 - A big, fruity Grenache that is pure blackberry in its aromas and flavors, touched with floral notes in the finish. I really enjoyed it, but it will not be to everyone's taste.
