    September 18, 2019 - Still a very deeply coloured pomegranate plum cross with no real bricking or even garnet tones. Nose is soft black currant, fresh mint, pencil shavings, light tar and mesquite charcoal. Quite minty in fact. Very fresh and elegant nose for a 17 year old wine! The palate is full bodied, quite smooth, dry and still has some gritty tannins. Slightly high alcohol but not at all hot. The flavours are red plum, crushed black currant, cedar, chalk, leather and black tea. Comes across as way more rustic on the palate than on the nose and in that sense a bit dichotic. Slight sour cherry note on the finish. Quite interesting.

    July 1, 2019 - PNP. Holding up very nicely. Rich fruit and nice acidity to go with it. Glad I waited.

    June 15, 2019 - I rated this wine fairly high because I have had it before and it was really good. I waited too long to try my last bottle. Cork disintegrated and the wine is past its prime. My bad. Won't do that again.

    June 9, 2019 - Great Cab, Jammy chewy, cassis, forest fruits and a tiny bit of glycerin and tannins all evolved. Nice smooth finish. Lovely to drink
