August 12, 2019 - Surprisingly good wine, feels like a mini Ornellaia, now in a great drinking window. Open from the start, yet becomes richer with some air. Has a round feel, slight chocolatey note, from the Merlot, yet still some tension, light structure, and is not overdone. Finish is not very long though, and whilst it gained a little with some air, would not decant too much, keep bottle opened too long.
August 4, 2019 - A dark colour; full, concentrated blackcurrant/blackberry fruit which tastes slightly burnt. This seems reasonably mature, but the finish is a bit restrained. May yet improve a little.
July 19, 2019 - A deep colour, garnet/brown; this is drinking very well now, mature but not old, with rich, slightly spicy plum/blackberry fruit and well integrated oak. A very good second wine.
June 21, 2019 - I expected more. If this wine were a person, the adjective would be ‘vapid.’
May 26, 2019 - A solid super tuscan. 92/93
May 11, 2019 - well structured with good balance but lacking great depth of palate
May 4, 2019 - I live this wine. Buy it every year and it’s seems to get drunk often .....! The 2010 version is delightful. Not terribly serious but excellent with food, smooth and very popular with those we’ve served it to.
April 20, 2019 - Wonderful wine. Big bodied. Yannis smooth. Still loads of fruit flavours. Long, smooth finish. Quite lovely.
April 10, 2019 - This was very tasty and can still go for a few years at least. If I had more, I'd still drink it sooner rather than later though...
April 7, 2019 - Even more tired than my last bottle. Glad it was my last. Still a pleasure to drink with a lot of Bordeaux like qualities, but my bottles completely lack acidity and tannins and on a steep downward trend.
