    October 7, 2017 - Better, it seems, than the last bottle. A bouquet of rich, dark berries lifts immediately from the glass and becomes more interesting with some time and swirling.
    The texture is raw silk and the flavours mouth-filling -- berries, notes of leather and smoke and possibly a hint of cardamon. The finish lingers as the tannins assert to complete the package.

    June 18, 2017 - More fruit than structure, but drinking very well, perhaps at peak. Drink now, very pleasant and enjoyable mid-week wine.

    December 11, 2016 - Just OK for what I hoped for. I've had some bottles in the past that were quite exceptional from a QPR standpoint. No depth or complexity. It is always worth the test.

    December 9, 2016 - Lovely forward nose of black berry coulis and a hint of tobacco. Firm on the palate, showing more of the blackberries and a bit of black olive. Lingering finish -- felt like a fine cocoa powder coating. A very good wine.
