Deep ruby coloration. On the nose, cherry, blueberry, strawberry and florals. On the palate, cherry, cassis and plum, giving way to chocolate, vanilla and a long finish of oak and tea with strong tannins. 2012 vintage.

Wow. Nickel & Nickel at its finest. So much going on in this wine. Vanilla and blackberry and a whole bouquet of flowers. There is so much here that I could fill a page worth of descriptors. It's even approachable right now. Ok I'll stop talking and pour another glass

12' It's not ready for prime time. Popping this at a restaurant was a mistake... without a proper decanting. Not overly impressed.

A very good 2012. This wine showcases Oakville fruit very well. Blackberry, plum jamminess notes upfront finishing with oakville dust and tobacco. Medium bodied wine with rounded smooth tannins and a hint of acidity. Easy wine to drink with Pizza.

Jammy. Reminds me of Caymus with a stronger punch of alcohol aftertaste. Solid wine.
