    October 21, 2018 - Minty nose, sweet black fruit on the palate, well balanced and in its prime.

    October 4, 2018 - Deep colour
    Very concentrated, super-ripe wine with black currant pastille, mulberry, liquorice, aniseed aromas.
    The palate is rich and fleshy with plenty of sweet fruit, mocha oak and generous black current, mulberry, licquorice flavours. This is a fairly robust style, the dense, velvety tannins build up very sinewy and grippy at the finish.

    Pairs well with Beef, Duck and Game, Veal

    August 25, 2018 - Served double blind. Pronounced and intense minty-ness took me right to Oz (with maybe Heitz Martha's as a possibility). Fruit is sweeter and richer than I'd expect from Heitz, so I'm firmly in Oz. Name your mint - wintermint, speramint are intense though well integrated with the rich fruit. Fun, but not something I'd drink with regularity.

    March 29, 2018 - Enjoyed
    The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is heavy sediment in the bottle.
