I jumped on this producer a little later than some, discovering it just last year. This is only my second vintage of this wine and I find that for just under $14 a bottle, I will most definitely be buying a case, insuring at least a few bottles will have the time to age a bit. This is ready to rock right now. Big rich plum, complimented by a dark chocolate mouth-feel on the long finish. More than pleasant...88 pts. And for this price? 5 stars!
