    March 31, 2017 - The last of a case. Quite a bit of bricking at this stage. Washed out maroon. Looks like an aged barolo. Best to drink them up now. Still juicy dark sweet cherry. Really kicking off a ton sediment. A bit soft due to medium low acid.

    February 7, 2014 - The wine looks crimson colored with brick hue. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like very ripe red fruit, cranberry, strawberry and vanilla. It tastes like cranberry, raspberry, strawberry jam, vanilla, coconut, black olive and garrigue. The body is light/medium. The wine has silky texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity.

    May 30, 2012 - Nose initially is quite hot, alcoholic without a lot of compelling aromatics. Flavor profile is better as it is lighter than the nose would indicate. Pretty well balanced with anise albeit short finish.

    February 3, 2012 - This just gets better, probably my all time favorite QPR. Perfect quaffer with secondary notes of earth showing, too bad they be gone shortly.
