    December 31, 2013 - Was expecting better from a 2006 bottle; it was well preserved with all dark fruits apparent, but did not blow my socks off.

    May 16, 2012 - I've never been a fan of Rhone varietals, but this wine really made me change my mind.

    Very soft, with a smooth finish. Nose is a lot of cherries with a bit of butterscotch below that.

    A bit of spice on the palate, with a slight hint of oak.

    For $7, might be the best value I've ever seen. Just bought a bunch more of these.

    I don't think these'll get much better, so smoke 'em if you've got 'em.

    May 19, 2011 - Dominated by mourvedre, then syrah, grenache and then petite. 18 months in america, french and hungarian. Meaty on the nose, tastes like Mourvedre, duly noted on the spice and smoke. Works at $14, would be killer at $10.
