    January 8, 2019 - In a really lovely place right now. The nose is all cured meats, but the palate is a combo of mulberries and milk chocolate. Will likely hold for a few years yet, but delicious right now too.

    October 14, 2018 - This was better than the last bottle. Fresher fruit giving it more life and feeling a bit more youthful. Plums, blackberries, mocha and herbs. The signature gravelly tannins are still there. From the first bottle I thought it was on the downhill but this one would suggest it’s still going up.

    April 23, 2018 - Best bottle yet for me. Still got some primary black cherry and plum flavours but also some hints of tobacco. Needed an hour open to really sing.

    March 5, 2018 - Needs a decant. Plums, mocha, figs and blackberries. The tannin structure firms up with air and the palate freshens up to show more berry fruit. Still has a good acid line too. Interested to see how the next one goes.
