    November 22, 2017 - Dark blackish purple with a near opaque core in the glass. Nose of blackberry and tar, echoed on the medium full-bodied palate. Medium plus tannins assert themselves after some air. Medium plus acidity with a medium length, dark finish. A good choice for your Thanksgiving red.

    June 24, 2016 - I was unfamiliar with this wine. Based on several comments below, I decanted for a half hour before serving with a variety of elegant summer picnic foods, including grilles spiced sausages, couscous salad and a vegetable biryani. Our guests really enjoyed and asked me about it. Served just above cellar temperature. I wish I had a few more bottles!

    October 24, 2015 - Dark, deep fruits. Intense flavors. Solid strong tannins. Love any and all of Peter's wines. Perfect with grilled lamb chops.

    May 22, 2014 - remains intense wine. Dark, tongue staining wine. Good dark fruits on the nose and better on the palate. This is a wonderful wine. Great with pasta. Still drinking wonderfully. Wish I had more.

    September 11, 2011 - Dark, dark, dark. Veritably inky stuff. Good fruit, mostly dark berry. Tannins are still working. A little barnyard in there. Should hold up another year or two.
