Solid, but sub-optimal QPR, like most other Goosecross.

A really nice fig filled pleasure. A distinctive profile that lingers across the sides of your tongue.

Fond of Cab Franc and this delivered in spades. Black cherry, tootsie roll, tobacco, leather.

Star of the show for me. Like a good Italian and its Lasagna, I tend to judge by their Cab Franc. This one delivered. Dark Chocolate, tobacco, clover and spice. Oh so nice!

Garnet in color, pungent nose with herbaceous notes, blackberry and a tighter finish than expected.

Fantastic tobacco and leather with just the right amount fruit still present.

This is better than the last time I tried it and it definitely needs time in the glass. Good development of secondary aromas including tobacco, spices(cumin), and cedar. Nice dark berry flavors fill the palate initially with a return of acidity in the mid-palate turning into some black raspberry and cherry flavors. Finish persists for about 30 seconds and is very pleasant.
