    March 13, 2017 - from double magnum this is was like the 67 on steroids. the fruit was there, the tannins were resolved, it was well balanced, a great CB from an off year and is ready to drink

    July 3, 2016 - very dark red, showing very little age. Nose has pencil lead, leather and blackberries. Well balanced and vigourous - black fuit and fine balance. Good concentration. a lovely bottle.

    April 13, 2016 - Good briary dark cherry notes and good underlying sweetness with a long spiced finish. Just a touch rustic with a cigar box notes. Mature, but drinking well.

    March 4, 2016 - No formal TN, but remember that it had a bit if CF funk, it was really multilayered and its class was evident. It was quite dense and restrained and had an excellent mouthfeel.
