April 22, 2017 - Have liked every bottle of this wine.....a great, great, value. Very deep and dark. However, I have a sense that this one may be ready to tire. I am going to put my remaining bottles in the drink soon section of my Wine Room.

April 4, 2017 - Aromatic, spicy cooperage, cherry/currant fruit and ginger on the nose. Ripe and spiced flavours on the palate with an evolving, woodsy finish.

January 10, 2017 - A supremely good wine for pairing with almost every food, with the acidity to brighten bland foods, the tannin to clean out meats and fatty foods like sausage and cheeses, and delicious fruit to make a fruitless food more tasty and complex. Opaque with an inch pour, fragrant black cherry and blackberry, dense and smooth texture, self cleansing acidity and tannin, and years of superb drinking left.
