Delicious inexpensive juice. Delivers way above its price point!

Delish strong smoke and black pepper bites on the nose that carry through with dark cherry on the tongue. Rounds out with a really smooth low tannin full mouth feel! For less than $15 drinks like a $40!

Outstanding at $15 bottle. Balsamic and black fruit on the nose, with flavors of cherry and plum. (Others said tobacco but I couldn’t pick that up.) Well-integrated tannins. Just so smooth.

Best red I've had in a while--very clean, smooth with cherry and blackberry.

Loved the 2010, but this is just terrible. Don't buy it. Leave it in the store, and I'll... dispose... of... it... properly.


Did everyone else stop reading? Ok; good. I couldn't imagine anything being a better everyday, value bottle than the 2010. The 2011 has a softer nose, pours wide open, and, generally, is more round and balanced. Buy by the case (just not before I get mine).

Yes. Value and goodness. Perfect pairing with a little spice.
