June 16, 2021 - Drank with John and Tiffany to celebrate John's 40th birthday.
So much improved from 5 years ago!
The blackberry catches you first, followed by anise and spice. Still grippy with integrated tannins. This still has a good few years left at peak!
Perfect for a cool night sunset cruise on the lake.
December 31, 2020 - Une dernière bouteille... Magnifique nez de fruits noirs...cerise noir et cassis, de taillures de crayon, d'épices, de notes de chocolat et de vanille. Les tannins sont poussiéreux. Un vin fruité...saveur de cerise noir...charnu, riche et corsé...et complexe. Longue finale chaude avec un soupçon de poivre blanc. Délicieux !
December 20, 2020 - L'il Rob visiting
Opened, decanted, and drank over four hours.
Ruddy brownish burgundy in color
Sweet tobacco, plums, vanilla, oak, black tea. Amaze!
Full bodied. The sweet dark fruit characteristics carry through. Long finish. Taste largely follows the nose. Very nice wine. Fair QPR.
June 19, 2020 - Amazing wine that’s drinking perfectly right now. I’m thinking open another closer to the end of the year and save the others for 2021. Dark fruit (not overly fruity) rich dark color smooth tannins. Was perfect from start to finish, great dinner wine.
January 30, 2020 - Beautiful wine...a fan favourite of the tasting!
Nez de groseille (redcurrant), de vieille barrique et d'épices. Saveurs de bleuet et de cerise confits. Harmonieux, souple et ample...sensation d'umami. Longue finale aux notes d'épices. Délicieux...et boire maintenant !
November 23, 2019 - Nice, solid wine. Purplish color, dark berries on nose and palate. Tannins nicely integrated-- finish a little short. Not overly extracted and has some Bordeaux type tendencies. A good food wine.
June 22, 2019 - 2.5 hour decant,consumed over the next three hours
Dark frothy purple, full bodied
Tons of dark fruit. Blackberries, blueberries, some wet wool, anise
Well balanced. Nice acidity and tannin. Tastes like the nose with a medium finish. EXCELLENT QPR (+1pt) Not even close to being a fruit bomb however. Lot's of nuances. Well made wine. Drinking perfectly right now.
This wine really blew me away. I wish I had more than one bottle left. Lovely wine for the price.
Smoked a Drew Estate Liga Privada No. 9
February 9, 2019 - Tough wine to open up , after 7 hours decanted it finally opened. Wine was firm, structured and strong but smooth
September 17, 2018 - This drank really nice - balanced, good fruit but not overbearing. Enjoyed what was left the second night even more.
April 28, 2018 - Floral & mineral notes...celery salt...spices... Medium dry, well structured & balanced... Dark sweet fruit, new leather...umami feeling... Long finish. Excellent wine. Drink by 2020. 93+
