    December 9, 2019 - WFS lunch.

    Coonawarra capsicum on the nose. Medium-plus bodied, chalky and full-bodied tannins, fruit is still wound quite tightly. Give this an extended decent if approaching now, has the structure to go more years.

    December 5, 2019 - PnD let air for 1hr. Drank over 2hrs.

    Clear deep ruby almost purple.

    Clean. Medium(+) intensity with aromas of cassis eucalyptus plum anise and espresso.

    Dry. Medium alcohol. Medium acidity. Medium body. Medium(+) intensity with flavours of cassis eucalyptus plum and tar.

    Medium(+) finish. Very good. Drink now suitable for further ageing. Amazingly fresh well balanced great complexity. Definitely CS with the green notes as spice not the main course. Great value that shows the rewards of ageing.

    November 16, 2019 - Graphite and bramble. Slight stalky crunch. Firm structured core that time has started to round and soften the edges. Moreish. Lots of drinkability here.

    October 24, 2019 - Another very good bottle. I'd like the boisterous fruit to settle down just a bit as this ages. Don't get me wrong, this is nothing like the ooze-monsters of yesteryear (I'm talking about you, Marquis Philips!). There's so much detail here to go along with the substantial fruit, with savory, herbal Cabernet flavors that don't have the varietal character ripened out of it. Tannin is also fairly prominent still, which should tame down with a bit more time sideways. Super interesting and pleasing Cabernet at this stage, though, and I look forward to tasting this again a few years from now.
