    April 22, 2006 - Wow. I love this wine. It is almost port like. very round and lush. the sweetness is not overwhelming by any means. it is unique, and quite a nice way to end the meal.

    April 7, 2006 - wow. a perfect end to a great meal. This wine is full of body and flavors. It is a nice complement to a chocoalte dessert or by itself. Great effort.

    March 31, 2006 - Sweet grape jelly nose. On the palate, it is not syruppy at all. The fruit continued and there seemed to be a hit of something like eucalyptus. There is a ton of structure with some tannins on the finish. This is an excellent desert wine that would pair well with cheese.

    March 13, 2006 - Fair amount of oak that hides the high alcohol. Interesting wine with "port-like" qualities. I'm on the fence if I like this or not.

    December 24, 2005 - Interesting wine. The late harvest grenache has a smooth, slightly spicy feel. Very intense flavor, but balanced with more fruit than sweetness.
