    July 17, 2018 - My notes in the main are similar to another of my recent reviews.
    However, the fruit to me, was much more vibrant than the last bottle.
    Excellent wine, and thoroughly appreciated by my guests.
    I you have any left, I recommend drinking now!
    Cheers and enjoy.

    May 26, 2018 - I have had this cellared from vintage release.
    The cork, out in good cond. Decanted.
    Deep ruby with a tinge orange rim.
    Aromas, soft mint, red and black currents.
    Palate, so welcoming!
    Mellow, still enough acids, softened red currents and fruit, mint, mild oak, choc humming in the background.
    Structured, elegant, fine drinking.
    Enough fruit still to piece it together, but if you still have, you should consider drinking.
    Enjoyed by all.
    Cheers

    September 15, 2017 - Incredibly soft with hints of fruit and raisins on the palate but unfortunately past its best and this is starting to show on the nose.

    August 22, 2015 - Less fruit more secondary flavours. Still a fair bit of tannin. Holds high alcohol very well

    April 3, 2015 - Just saw my notes from the last bottle - it's better than that this time. An overall pleasing wine without being great. Soft tannins, v approachable. That stewed fruits on the nose. Some secondary cigar box, not much
