    August 23, 2014 - Plummy. But not going to get better. A mouthful of combined tannins fruit and old age. Slight vanilla taste but not what it used to be.

    December 17, 2013 - Opened for 3 prior to drinking. Beautiful purple, quite smooth, well balanced and easy to drink, just short of a medium finish. Drink now for sure, reached its peak.

    September 4, 2013 - Do not open and drink straight away. Or you will pour down sink. On reflection a decanter would have been sensible for a 10 year old wine that the vale says will cellar for 5-8 years. Very dry and flat on opening. But opened up to be smooth. Yet still lacking total substance.

    May 19, 2012 - Fading, much of the fruit is gone, only reasonably balanced.
