    November 12, 2016 - Decanted 1 hour. Lots of ripe, dark fruit on the nose with a little kirsch liqueur. Powerful attack of dark fruit on entry. Quite extracted in style but shows nice structure and is not too heavy. Long finish with manageable tannins. Really good wine that should continue to drink well for another 10+ years

    July 13, 2016 - No notes as we had this wine later in the evening but it was killer. All of our guests took one sip, looked at each other and raised their eyebrows! Wish I had more than one bottle left.
