    January 16, 2016 - Still tannic but starting to come around. Plan to revisit end of 2016.

    November 10, 2015 - Wife and I love Pichon Lalande and so took a shot at Lady May's South Africa venture. A good wine, probably consumed too young, doesn't make me yearn for more Stellenbosch. Ok, a confession, wanted to find Pichon from Africa, or a wine of that quality and year in year out excellence. This is another good Bordeaux blend, but I think Parker over rated it.

    September 3, 2015 - Very Bordeaux like. Wish I had another to try in 5 years.

    April 18, 2015 - Dark impenetrable red at the rim - initially quite a bit of tar on the nose, later more cassis and cedar. Fairly huge on the palate, dense and tannic, layers of fruit, fresh but needs quite a lot more cellar time. It will be fascinating to see how this ages, and it needs a lot more age yet...
