    December 25, 2014 - One of my favorites. Drank in 2014 I held it too long.

    August 22, 2012 - A nice fruit forward wine. Primary aromas and flavors of cherry, strawberry along with seasoned leather. More California than Italia but very tasty.

    March 24, 2012 - Beginning to show signs of weakening and becoming flat.
    Drink soon

    February 18, 2011 - This is a great everyday wine although for the price you could probably find a bit better but all in all not bad and very enjoyable. Had it with whole wheat pasta made with a cheese, mushroom, broccoli and chicken sauce.
