Really well done for the price point. The fact that after it is shifted to stainless after 3 months allows for the grape to shine yet allows for the oak to slightly influence the gamey, blueberry features with pepper and spice. Drink now - Paul

Really good, full bosied, but a little strong on the tannins for me.

That does Rhone style reds at this price is good...that they are at a consistently high level is even better. this is big and bold, blueberries, sweetish dark cherry tannins, some cigar box, violets - yumm. Drink now - Paul

Delightful wine with plenty fruit, aromas and finish. The tannins are smooth and the well blanced acidity leads to a juicy, mouth watering finish. For under $10 this is a steal. Drink now - Paul

A big wine that drinks a ton above it's price point. Violets, blueberry and black currant note hit the air and then follow to the palate with additional wood, pepper, spice and tomato leaf. Plenty of tannins this could sit for another year easily. 90 points - Drink or hold - Paul

I was expecting more but it was satisfying. Plenty of red berry fruit, tannins, acidity, spice and herbal tones. There was a slight barnyard funk to this that needs 45 mins. of decanting. 88 points - Drink now - Paul

Wonderful offering, with blackberry, mocha, dark cherry tannins, spice and violets. This expresses a less full bodied version of merlot (feminine style) and they've done it well for years. Drink or hold -90 points - Paul

Not a bad entry level pinot and well worth $10. It has a dark cherry profile that adds richness with an earthiness and touch of spice. Good daily drinker. 86 points - drink now - Paul

Plenty of fruit - red and black with a spicey nuance that developes, violets and other floral aromas. Chewy tannins and good acidityleave a medium length aftertaste. 89 points - drink now - Paul

Easy going red that's smooth, with red and dark berry fruits, mellow tannins and a good finish.
