    October 20, 2016 - Lovely notes of black cherry, red plum and dark chocolate. Very well balanced with clean finish.

    October 18, 2016 - A lovely Paloma Merlot this time around. Balanced, well fruited, a pleasure.

    October 16, 2016 - Whilst essentially as earlier notes, just starting to show its age with truffly hints (that I like) coming into the mix. Still enough grip but see no point in holding for more than a couple of years max.
    Excellent but for drinking up.

    Looking forward to a couple of weeks+ break from next Wednesday in FLA for a friend's son's wedding (Ft Lauderdale) then touring: (The Keys, Everglades, Orlando - NOT Disney!, Cape Canaveral) and, in a wonderful coincidence, watching No.2 daughter playing polo at The Villages.
    Restaurants being booked online!

    September 25, 2016 - Inky purple black, intense blackberry fruit, with oak and vanilla, strong backbone and somewhat over the top alcohol showing through. Would score higher if fully balanced but this is not quite fully qnit together and has a few harsh edges.

    September 17, 2016 - CHERRIES, BLACK RASPBERRIES, CURRANTS, AND HINTS OF LICORICE AND CHOCOLATE IN THE NOSE AND FLAVOR. MEDIUM LENGTH FINISH.
