    January 24, 2015 - Medium depth red with a dark core and fading rim.
    Rich red and black berries. Has a pure clean fragrance, lovely perfectly ripe fruit and a delicately earthy, forest floor complexity.
    Velvety texture, perfect balance and finishing crisply but harmoniously. The flavours are of well fruited but mature burgundy, dark cherries, damsons, lightly earthy, but nothing that comes across as overly gamey, more a delicious sweet leathery character. The flavours are so long it is incredible, an absolute peacocks tail that actually seems to expand after swallowing. Delicacy, amazing length, dark and red fruits, a certain zestiness, this has it all. What remains will last for decades. Stunning.

    December 14, 2014 - Waves of dark red fruit just keep on coming. Intensely sweet, perfumed and simply gorgeous. Silky, spicy mouthfeel. Utterly, effortlessly perfect. I seriously thought about closing my eyes and paying up for a case of this then I remembered my wife has the keys to the shotgun safe.

    August 11, 2014 - Gorgeous. Vies for WOTN for me ( along with the 88 DRC Richy) . Dark color. Spice. Some funk. Sous bois, Sweet, ripe dark fruited on the palate with great balance and drinkability. Velvet texture. 97
