    March 29, 2019 - Spectacular wine. We drank with cheese for dessert and it was better than a nice port.

    June 29, 2018 - What a brilliant surprise. I too opened the “wrong”bottle and was shocked to find a stunning port instead of a powerful Kapcsandy cab. Rich, smooth and perfect compliment for cheese or dessert.

    November 11, 2017 - Delicious wine, very port-like but also very California. Figs, raisins, cherry, chocolate, nice spice and acid.

    November 8, 2013 - Colgin, SQN, SHS, Saxum, Bevan, DP ++++ (GHT): Perhaps gilding the Lilly, but we finished things off with this. Dark cherries and raisins on the nose. On the palate, dark cherries, raisins, some coffee. This is really nice. It drinks like a cherry flavored port if that makes sense. Lovely thick texture. Warming without being hot. A nice finish.

    June 21, 2013 - On day 2 this wine is better than on day 1. Molasses, raisins, and chocolate, I think. Sublime.
