    May 4, 2018 - Certainly showing it's age, the nose and palate is low on fruit but high on the brambly herbaceous tones. Worked well with pasta, sausage, and sauce. Has a bit of an acidic bite to it on the finish, but still very tasty and balanced overall.

    October 28, 2013 - Clear ruby garnet in the glass. Cherry and raspberry with New World Christmas candy sheen. Smooth on the nose-echoing palate: almost negligible tannins, medium body feel despite high (14.4%) alcohol, dark rubber lengthy finish. Probably as good as it will get. Drink up within the next year or so.

    July 7, 2011 - The nose on the glass seemed fine, and even the first couple sips appeared ok. But it rapidly started giving me an odd taste and feeling in the mouth, and then turned so rancid as to make it undrinkable. All within like 10 minutes of opening it.

    October 13, 2010 - Delicious, fragrant, medium body, balanced. Recommend decanting (lots of sediment). An absolute crowd pleaser. Will purchase again.

    July 13, 2009 - Much better than the first bottle I consumed, enjoyed the strawberry and a hint of what I thought to be raisin. Was really a nice wine and would buy again
