    March 1, 2021 - Found this lost in the corner of my cellar. No surprise - it was past its prime - with dried fruit aromas and tea color in the meniscus, but at the same time, also very drinkable. Amazingly rich, ripe dark cherry fruit with a concentrated, full body and soft edges on the palate. A bit of acidity on the finish. Improved with airtime

    November 10, 2015 - I had one glass, very balanced and smooth. one friend was really taken with it. First wine of the evening served with cheese and crackers.

    November 21, 2014 - Last bottle of this one, sadly. Mellowed to near perfection. Nicely balanced velvety. If you still have some, just give it some air and it will open up nicely. Or send it to me!

    October 27, 2014 - This is what I call a typical flavored Chianti. That said it is a bit disappointing for a reserve. Medium body flavors include a tart cherry and slight smoke and leather. Finish was a tad weak with light tannin along with cherry. An enjoyable but not outstanding wine.
