    March 12, 2016 - Glad this is my last one of these. Not at all worth the price paid. Worked it's way up to OK after being open for 3 hours.

    September 1, 2014 - A Labor of Love (and wine and beer) (Our home): I was told this was corked. I don't think so, so I assume it was just quite dusty when opened. By the time I got to it, it was nice. The nose is very dusty (Rutherford?) with cherries and some heavy use of oak. It does have a great texture. The palate also shows some oak but also some nice cherries. A lot of oak/heat on the finish. Some will love this wine more than I. For me, it just is over oaked. It is s till a very good wine, but perhaps it might have been even better. I doubt the fruit outlasts the oak.

    April 20, 2013 - Initially as you have a taste very smooth but before you swallow exudes a very powerful finish. Very appealing. Several years left for aging.

    December 2, 2012 - Sooth and welcoming, long warm favor, soft gentle bouquet. Enjoyed a glass prior to dinner and worked with full flavored Fall fair as well.
