    November 5, 2021 - In a great place to drink. Baking spices on the nose lead in to a palate of tobacco and graphite wrapped around a red cherry core

    February 18, 2020 - Tasted blind at a NYC restaurant, while it was decanted, it was basically a pop 'n pour. A fantastic QPR wine, that seems to punch way above its weight class. I purchased a case at auction and this was the 9th bottle. One was corked, the others have all been very good. Still some fruit left, with very little tanic backround.

    September 15, 2019 - Still very dark with a solid bouquet of red fruit with a hint of cedar. The wine still seemed to have tannin with good acidity but not as round or full as I was hoping. Everyone very much enjoyed it and found it delicious.

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