    April 7, 2010 - One last time... it's still drinking pretty darn well. Last two bottles are both uncorked and checking them out over the next few days. (Yeah I know, have to update the online cellar)
    Still a great QPR if you have them. The original bright red cherry has faded a bit, and it's definitely lost some body... but its still got some solid body left. Another round of Spring Cellar Cleaning 2010.

    April 7, 2009 - This was a strong red -- the smell was a bit much at first, but toned down. Great with Mexican food, and we enjoyed the rest of the bottle after dinner too; it really mellowed out on its own, but was pleasant still. I really enjoyed this wine.

    February 17, 2009 - Soft and flabby, with decently juicy red fruit and spice but no structure. There's little in the way of acid or tanning to give this wine backbone or complexity, so it just sort of limps across the palate.

    January 10, 2009 - Medium body, intense fruit. CHERRY COLA BOMB! Finish that won't stop. Apparent oak with some solid vanilla. Almost Dr. Pepper in a ZIN. Very nice for the money.

    November 22, 2008 - Better than expected. Given the price point, worth buying again.
