Not an earth shattering merlot but solid with good quality wine making behind it. A core of dark berry fruit, spice, woody notes, anise and chocolate leads to a sweetish flush of dark cherry tannins that are chewy and framing. Balanced acidity leads to a nice finish that's short but full. Drink now - Paul

Not the body of previous vintages, though the aromatics are still very good. Lemongrass, apple, a touch of stone fruit and citrus. The juice nips at the throat and finishes with an acidic, juicy and mouthwatering finish. Drink last year. Paul

Much like the Hahn this offered rich fruit - dark cherry but more red berry fruit, soft and elegant with spice, earth and cocao. This finish was lingering and mouthwatering. No wonder this was WS Top 100 for only $13. Drink now - Paul

Wine of the night and at $20 this oozes QPR from start to finish. Why a 92 you ask - stunning depth of fruit, dark cherry, raspberry, full & lush, spice, earthiness, mocha, moderate tannins and well balanced acidity give this a mouth watering, long lasting aftertaste. Excellent wine! Drink or hold - Paul

Solid, with depth and structure. Some red berry fruit with backing blackberry, wood and earthy noted lead to a lively lasting finish. Drink now or hold (4-6) years - Paul

Solid wine built along the lines of a weaker red than a rose. Aromas of cherry and raspberry mix with anise, chocolate and spice - though they are heavier, it is still a refreshing wine. Drink now - paul

Wonderful nose of pear, lemon, citrus, melon and honeysuckle. This has been a favorite for hot sunny days on the deck for several years now. Juicy, tart finish blends with the right amount acidity and with a touch of small bubbles gives an uplifting aftertaste. Drink now - Paul

A dark purple with blackberry, oak, a moss like odor, dark chocolate along with slightly bitter berry (chockecherries). The taste reflected similar with a light alcohal and very well balanced tannins. This screams for rare steak.

A nice light purle color the nose had some cerry overtones, but not much else. The taste wasn't what I would call interesting, on the contraire, it wasn't there at all.

The nose noticably lacking with the exception of blackberry. The taste reflected the blackberry added cherries; very heavy tannins, kinda flat with no finish.Perhaps as Paul noted it is going through a "dunb faze".

The nose found blackberry, oak, a pleasant earthiness and coffee. The taste found blackberry and coffee; while very dry there was also balanced tannins and lime on the finish.
