    March 18, 2016 - Dark garnet core out to a slightly browning rim - showing some but not a great deal of maturity. The nose shows black berry, plum and black cherry with definite liquorice, leather, espresso and dried herbs in the background. Soft on the palate with resolved but still evident tannins, balanced acidity and elevated but not unpleasant alcohol. Initial flavours of ripe black fruit evolve into dried red fruit (black cherry) and leather with the liquorice and espresso still there in the long finish. This has developed extremely well and is ready to go now. Tanner and Advocate got it right with 89/91 points and Spectator had a fail with 84 points. Purchased in 2006 and allowed to develop in a properly controlled cellar.

    February 11, 2015 - Lesson learned - held on to this too long. Stewed. Will try another bottle, but not holding out much hope.
    There is moderate sediment in the bottle.

    February 16, 2013 - Very rich, jammy, dark fruits. Spicy. Slightly acidic finish. Very nice. Youthful. Lots of life left.

    April 20, 2012 - Pretty crimson red. Wonderful nose of raspberries and blackberries mixed with vanilla, cola, and coffee. Some strawberry on the attack that quickly fades to a slightly bubble-gum like mid palate that in turn quickly moves to blackberry, cola, and a mild coffee finish. The blackberry portion of the finish lasts forever. Very good stuff, and the wine isn't showing its age a bit - it still drinks young and probably has another 12 years or so of life.
