    January 31, 2012 - Ruby color with dusty aromas. Medium to light mouth feel. Dry but really savory and spicy with meaty, beef jerky flavors. Fair balance and good structure that stood to pot roast. Good length and pleasant finish.

    March 5, 2011 - Enjoying the restrained fruit. Elegant fruit w/ a touch of bitterness that I appreciate. Not complex but tasty.

    July 16, 2010 - light garnet color(almost pinot noir-like hue). very simple juice..black raspberries, cherries, spice and light oak. light tannins and light body with a short finish. not what expected from a reserva.

    July 1, 2009 - Popped and poured. Deep Garnet. Nose of earth, spice, and cherry. Medium bodied palate of dark cherry, blackberry, cinnamon and mineral. Good length. Smooth tannins. Integrated oak. Really overdelivers for the price!
