    March 5, 2017 - Again, a total winner. This time, Flo and I drank this at Restaurant Alba, me paired with gorgeous roasted lamb, she with baby back short ribs. It was lovely! Medium nose, beautiful crystal red in color. Light, well-structured, bit of spice on the palate, slatey edge, along with violets, of all things. Must be the Grenache? Pleasing finish. A great wine with plenty of character.

    June 27, 2014 - Dark deep red with aromas of dark ripe berries...it was medium bodied, dry and rich with ripe cherry and blackberry flavors with a grenache slatiness. The finish was medium and dry.

    November 25, 2013 - Third bottle in a row that is a foul-smelling mess. I bouught 5 of them on close-out for $7 or so. Thankfully only two more to try if I even bother. Some decent Grenache spicy fruit on the palate, but I just can't get past the aroma - and I like a bit of Rhone funk. It also appears a little cloudy in the glass.

    May 21, 2013 - Hated it. I thought it was corked but wasn't. I must try another bottle. I feel there was something wrong with this one.
