Aaron:  This is unbelievable for a $20 bottle.  Fresh tobacco leaves on the nose dance with black currant and vanilla beans.  The fruity flavor is mild with good body and appropriate tannins.  Lots of cocoa and vanilla make this luscious and easy to drink for hours.  Delicious.  92 points

Teri: This bottle has a nose of pepper and bing cherry. The flavor is smooth but hearty, good tannins, and I could taste juicy berry, cassis, and a little bit of leather. Great quality for a 20 dollar bottle. 91 points
