    October 5, 2012 - Beautiful bouquet! Secondary flavours. Mid length. Would have been better 10 years ago. But still rather nice now.

    February 25, 2008 - Wine is opaque, purple with brown edges. nose of very sour cranberries, and creek mud/clay. Tastes of wood, sour raspberries/cranberries. Really benefited from 3 hours decanting. Light bodied, short finish acidic, mild tannins. Enjoyable for the age.
