Delicious. Maybe my favorite wine right now. Dark fruit, silky smooth tannins, wonderful buttery deliciousness. This will be a staple for sure.

Started off delicious but after an hour or two got all syrupy, ripe and dense. Not a bad wine, but picked a little earlier could be a lot better I think

Great nose of black fruits, big plum and black cherries in mouth, wow! Another knockout from SeaSmoke 2013

Crunchy dark cherries, overripe raspberries, cinnamon red-hots. Should settle down and improve with 2 years age.

This is in a really good place right now. I coravined about 2/3 but should have drank the whole thing. The fruit will likely start declining in a year or so.
