    October 20, 2010 - For mr. Hardy:
    Nice nose of dusty red and dark fruits, forest floor, tobbacco and some cedar and wood aromas.

    September 6, 2009 - Still quite chewy, though came in to its own with rib of beef. Plummy, dark red fruit, still a little dry and chewy on the finish. Moderate weight and length. Half a bottle left had oxidised noticeably overnight. Decent with suitable food. ***
