    November 3, 2018 - A really good QPR wine and already drinking well but no need to rush on this - this has at least another decade left under appropriate cellaring conditions and I do anticipate some further improvement (with a concomitant improvement in the score) with further time, especially with improved balance and integration. Clear black color with no hint of aging / bricking. Intense nose of brambles, dark fruit, spices (lavendar, rose) and a hint of smoke. Good mouth feel, long aftertaste, good backbone and acid and tannins still very much present - as noted above all the flavor elements here but with time will be a smoother more integrated wine as the tannins soften. Palate earthy with dark fruit (plum, black cherry), stone and on the mid-late palate more leather, tobacco abd smoke. Highly recommend - this wine definitely still has upside with further cellaring. Stylistically not purely an old world wine.

    January 17, 2018 - Strawberry, vanilla, herbal notes, plum skin. Tasted blind... nailed Grenache, but didn’t seem old world

    April 24, 2017 - Drank over 2 nights - better on night 2.

    Dark red color. Earth, black raspberry, dark fruits & glycerin on nose. Similar palate profile. with Full body, medium+ acidity and long finish. 91+ on night 1 and 92+ on night 2 - this should age well.

    September 17, 2015 - No change from previous note. Still going strong, and definitely not dumbing down. A sizable wine drinking great now but with another 10 years to go.
