    December 2, 2023 - Most popular wine at our 2009 tasting event. Still tight, but with decent fruit balance. No rush to try the next bottle, as this has the structure to last a long time.

    November 28, 2023 - Really classy. I've previously observed that this was red fruited and light but now it's showing as a much more rounded out and elegant offering. Has a distinct oak backbone - but prominent rather than dominant - and then glorious layers of violet, dark cocoa, cinnamon (or something in the woody spice department), and silky, liqueur-like blackcurrant. This was really joyful.

    November 27, 2023 - Over two nights. Cherry on the nose; blackberry in the mouth. A lovely wine drinking well now. We had this wine and the 2009 Leoville Barton in successive weeks, and this was the superior wine at this time.
