    December 22, 2018 - Forward nose of dark red fruit and leather. Palate is well integrated with ripe soft tannins leading to a moderate finish.

    October 2, 2018 - PNP. cork perfect. color dark and not much ageing. this was dominated by plum and coconut. great fruit and balance and was just what i was looking for to match with lamb chops. agree with my previous notes that there is plenty of life ahead....

    September 14, 2018 - CORKED!! I've been pulling some wines with a bit of age, and this is the second corked bottle this week. I think I had two corked wines all of last year.

    July 22, 2018 - Good but not great. Dark cherry, hot medium finish. Not a typical Bordeaux but not full flavor California red.

    April 8, 2018 - Had this at a Bordeaux night with my wine group. 2 bottles, that were opened, but not decanted, at least an hour before drinking. The first of the 2 bottles was flawed, but this bottle was singing! A joy to drink. A sweet fruit (black raspberries) nose. And a medium length finish.
