    January 2, 2020 - Also had with the 08 which I would rank slightly better. Assume this will peak for my palate in 2022-24

    November 16, 2019 - Rich ripe black fruits with a smooth sensual texture. Surprisingly soft and supple give the high percentage of petite verdot. Don’t see this improving, but this will hold for years to come.

    July 17, 2019 - Decanted for 30 minutes. Aromas of blackberry, cassis, black cherry, touch of bell pepper and roasted herbs. Flavors of blackberry, black cherry, currant, touch of raspberry and hint of chocolate. Ends with a big mouth coating finish of 40+ seconds with currant notes. These Bevan wines are big and bombastic but certainly well made.

    July 7, 2019 - PnP but tasted throughout ~1.5 hours. Recent reviews hold true- great wine with an even better QPR. Knock out of a wine that is in its peak window with a good like ahead to enjoy. Drink now and later as the wine has just entered its prime.
