    December 7, 2014 - Not sure what happened, but the cork was extremely soft and broke apart upon opening. The wine had turned and was full of sediment.

    April 20, 2014 - Big nose of coconut mint oaky nose with some dark cherries, chocolate and sweet spices. This wine is quite unbalance at the beginning with noticable of alcohol. After 2 hrs, it is more enjoyable. Tannin is dusty and rounded with a lot of dark fruits, liquorice, dark chocolate and mint flavours. Length is only medium with dry and liquorice finish. Price is quite reasonable, only HK$260.
