A fruit bomb! Just love the nose and delicious fruit and tame tannins. I shared this with box wine drinkers and they said they could see spending the extra $$ for this wine, A steal at $20.

Several of us had this back to back with the 2004 to compare. Many preferred this while one person preferred the '04. But overall everyone liked them both and they are very similar. The '04 was a little more dry and not quite as much fruit. The lower alcohol of the '05 was appreciated (14.8 vs 15.5) although neither felt hot. Agree with 2BuckChuck, a good bottle for $20.

I bought a bottle yesterday based on the recommendations here. Very fruity! I thought it was a bit soft on the tip of my tongue, but then POW. Very fruity! Some cherry. Not much in the way of tannin. Great nose and a great finish. I'd say it's worth the $20, but I won't stock up.

This is a very good wine for the price. the structure isn;t too rigid, and the finish isn't too memorable; yet it is a delightful quaff. I don't know how much better it will get, but it is definitely drinkable now and well worth $20 and maybe even up to $30 or $35. I don't recommend cellaring, but I do recommend drinking.

Aromas of spice box, blueberries and other dark fruit. Flavors of jammy dark berries, cedar, and tobacco. Good structure and complexity. The finish is decent but not exceptionally long. Overall, a nice value and similar to the 2004 offering

Purple in color. Rich red fruit and spice box on the nose. Cedar spice, coffee and blueberries on the palate with a nice mouth feel. Normal finish with some heat. Rated 89 on CT. DTQPR = 88.60

Thought you all would like to know (if some do not know already) that Sparky and Sarah Marquis used to make this wine before they started Mollydooker.
