    December 29, 2017 - Nothing really stood out with this wine - fruit/body/nose/finish. Not unpleasant, but an average wine.

    August 21, 2012 - Enjoyed at Debbie and Brad's. This was a boring wine. I was the one that liked it the least. Thank goodness everyone else REALLY liked it because I seemed like a hero. Everyone else would have rated it a 92. Can't understand why. This wine was uncorked intact, zero bleed, medium stain on the cork. Nothing out the bottle initially. Passed through a vinturi into a decanter. Swirled for a while. Poured into glass - deep red. Nose out of the glass was mixed dark berry fruit. QUITE prominent. Entry was sweet blackberry pie, then the generic-ness of this wine came out. In the mid-palate, that indecipherable taste came up. Cherry, currant, raspberry, (enter your fruit here) was all there. This wine tried too hard, and ended up looking like the velvet Elvis at the costume party. Finished with medium tannicity. Medium to full bodied offering. Nice, but thank goodness the one bottle was all I had. Won't be revisiting this one anytime soon. There are 100's of bottles of wine that taste just like this one. Paid $36/bottle, and let me tell you there are hundreds, likely thousands, of wines that would put this one to shame in the same category.
