    January 12, 2021 - I gave this 2 hours out of the bottle to breathe. Had during and after dinner. Better after dinner not paired with anything. An incredibly dense, concentrated, polished wine with sour cherry notes and a long finish. Perfect acidity level (not elevated).

    January 8, 2021 - Huge does not describe this wine. It's MASSIVE. Deep, dark, bold and extracted fruits. The quality is incredible. It's so big that I'd struggle to pair it as it will dominate almost anything. Some subtle and enjoyable tannins on a very lengthy finish. Wow.

    December 29, 2020 - In a good place. Dark rich extracted blackberries with smooth texture and good overall balance. Nice depth to the fruit concentration and very pretty flavor profile. Hedonistic in style. Yummy

    November 20, 2020 - ‘12 vintage. Drinking beautifully. Prior notes of “grilled grape jam” absolutely apply. I kinda expected it to be bigger than it is, but I won’t go so far as to say it’s fading. I have, let’s say, such BIG expectations for Bevan wines that I sometimes expect it to be more flamboyant and opulent than it is or ever was.

    October 22, 2020 - PnP, has been opened several hours. A little closed on the nose but the palate was soft and ready to go. I’ve admittedly been a lover of 12s and this is not exception. Great depth and intensity, plush but integrated and without confection. A reminder that even a few years in the cellar can really reward
