    June 20, 2017 - Dark fruits, a bit of forest floor, some tobacco, full bodied and mild tannins on the finish. Suggest a decant and aeration before drinking.

    June 18, 2017 - Opened 2.5 hrs before drinking but did not decant. Upon opening noted aromas of rich dark fruit with a hint of vanilla & dill. Served with grilled strip steaks. Cherry/berry flavors with long aftertaste. Moderate acidity. Alcohol level seemed high, but bottle states just 14%. Nice tannins went well with the steak. Very enjoyabe bottle for Father's Day.

    May 5, 2017 - From 75cl, apparently perfect cork, decanted 1 hour. A mixed-up kind of bottle. Good powerful ripe blackberry fruit, but some odd musty aromatics and unexpectedly abrasive, furry tannins. Bottle variation? Slight cork problem? 88P?
