    March 30, 2018 - Short decant yielding very little sediment. The nose offered up red and dark red fruits, with a touch of blue. All of these followed on the palate along with spice, juicy acidity, some drying tannins, and a touch of alcohol on the finish. Maybe the wine would have benefitted from more air, but there was not that much development in the glass. Usually a good GSM, but not the best showing from this bottle. Should last a couple of years -- try a longer decant.

    November 26, 2016 - What's left of the American Dream (Prince Sydney, 40 Hansard Street): Biscuit over sour red berries, green notes and touches of green peppercorn. Sour and spicy with tight, chalky, drying tannins on the mid palate over sour red berries. Nah.

    February 8, 2016 - An edge of ripeness, but overall very tasty and balanced.
