A staggeringly good wine. Spices, cranberry, orange, sage. So much going on. Was delicious with six years of age but I wish I had hung onto it for a bit longer.

Very nicely balanced. Dark fruit, touch of earth, solid acidity.

Elegant Rhône. Soft and supple. Fragrant nose and even keeled tannins. Deep reich blackberry with hints of tobacco and cedar. Smooth mouthfeel and longer finish.

Guilty pleasures. Donelan wines are amazing. This is no exception. Smooth and silky with blackberries and raspberries. Tannins well integrated. A true delight @joedonelan Yum This cuvee is an unbelievable gem at sub $50. Keep the great wines coming.

Amazing juice. Full bodied with soft tannins. Light acidity. Massive cherries and raspberries on the pallet. I love Donelan juice
