Aaron: Wow.  This bottle was awesome.  I’m generally of the opinion you don’t need to spend a ton of money to find a good bottle but this one is worth the extra few dollars.  The nose featured lots of strawberry and the palate was full of rich, dark berries followed by a hint of black pepper. The sweetness was appropriate but the berries weren’t overripe.  This was very, very easy to drink but still full bodied.  Great find!  92 points

Teri: If you want to spring a few extra dollars for something to impress, this is a bottle to pick up. The flavors of blackberry, leather, smoke and a hint of jam fill your mouth with a smooth and easy finish. This is a great bottle to enjoy by itself or with food. 92 points
