    March 8, 2017 - Popped 'N Poured at an Italian restaurant for a "Spanish Wines" night with my wine group. The group favorite. Good finish, complex nose and taste.

    March 3, 2017 - Oh my...Cinnamon and Sandalwood on the nose. Possesses a complex palate of Cedar, leather, Sandalwood and other Silk Road spices. Long finish. My second bottle from this great vintage. My only complaint is that I have just one bottle remaining from this vintage.

    March 2, 2017 - Traditional Rioja (RSJ, London): As per Friday's bottle, this is all red fruited elegance. Bright, lovely line. Long. Possibly just starting to close down a little, but very much in line with previously. Really lovely. **(**1/2)

    February 24, 2017 - David Pope's 60th (Medlar, London): Double decanted four hours in advance. Bright red fruit, a touch of vanilla and a dusty complexity. Good underlying acidity. Plenty here, and shows good complexity as it continues to open over an hour or so in the glass, but this needs another decade. ***(*1/2)

    January 29, 2017 - From a magnum. I've encountered some bottle variation in these. This was a great bottle. Dense red fruit, licorice, a little olive. No dill in this one. Great balance, a beautiful wine.
