November 22, 2014 - Different from previous bottles, with considerably more age in appearance and nose. Burgundy with hints of dried blood; medium body. Nose of black fruits with some wet wool, slightly dusty. Tastes of good blackcurrant and blackberry juice; chewy with some sour cherry fruits. Some blueberries, increasing towards the finish with a sour, spirity, spicy finish. Perhaps drying out, but better balance of tannins and spicy fruits than expected.

December 23, 2013 - Dry, tannic, with spices but... Boring and four-square. Little improvement with a few hours of air. Pass.

October 27, 2013 - Nice ruby colour, medium (-light) bodied. Restrained nose - gentle bramble fruits with a little dusty spiciness and then some black pepper. Perhaps a little woodiness. Very dry, tannic flavours at first: cassis thins initially but then comes back after an hour or so. Better than the last bottle, which was a rogue bottle, but on this basis only a year or so left.

September 19, 2013 - Popped and drunk.
Smell very similar to Calon. High alcohol nose, high acid, boysenberry nose. High acid taste. Taste is lacking a bit of depth. The nose is very good compared to the flavors. Not bad, but not great.

November 22, 2011 - Davy's Wine Tasting (London): A reasonably pleasant St Estephe that should be drunk quite young.
Less tannic with nice red fruit notes
