    October 13, 2019 - Deep ruby purple in the glass. Abundant nose of cassis, rhubarb, and light graphite. Fruit forward, full-bodied palate echoes the nose with medium acidity and medium plus, dusty tannins. Long, dark red finish wraps it all up. An excellent match for my cowboy rubbed porterhouse, and the perfect subject to test out my new Repour stoppers. It’s great now. I’ll be back over the course of the week to see how it fares. IF I don’t finish it all tonight! ��

    February 8, 2013 - This cab has held up well. Still deep purple to the edge, no signs of oxidation. Nose has faded a bit, but still a nice earthy blend of fruit and forest floor. Flavor is soft. Nice balance of dark fruit and very soft tannins. Last bottle of this $20 sale purchase back in 2007 - so good bye (buy) to a great QPR wine.

    February 3, 2011 - This is a big wine. Almost to the point of being too jammy, but not quite there. Cassis, oak, and vanilla flavors. There is also a spicy herbal thing going on that is hard to describe. I like the acidity on the finish. ($20)
