"Smooth and deep, with spicy nutmeg and pepper notes adding interest to the polished black currant and plum flavors, lingering easily on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 800 cases made." (WS)

"Boedecker’s Athena bottling is a very pretty wine, with a lovely entry offering pure, inviting cherry and berry fruit. Once in the mouth, it gently fades, just slightly disappointing as it seems to lose strength rather than gaining it. But the first impression is charming and delicious." (WE)
