    June 16, 2019 - Incredible wine. Balanced, perfect fruit, tannins, acidity. Was at dinner with family for fathers day but it was the WOTN. Smooth silky, satiny mouthfeel with great length and balance on the mid palette and finish. Sorry nothing more other than I wish I had a case. In a GREAT drinking window now.

    April 18, 2019 - Dark purple almost black, extracted style. Delicious dark fruit with rustic edge, Christmas cake, sage, leather, mint, eucalyptus. Med plus weight in mouth, subtle fine grained tannins. Doesn’t seem old world to me but still quite enjoyable. Has at least 5 years left.

    April 6, 2019 - A great example of classy Old World red. Expressive nose of concentrated blueberry, mild oak, sweet vanilla, balsamic, plus some tobacco and licorice. Very pleasing. Medium plus bodied, just ripe, smooth. Long finish. Let it breathe just 10 min, then it's 95/100. Hours later 94/100.

    March 23, 2019 - Perfume, vanilla, mint bouquet. Cassis, lavender, violet on the palate. This is close to the burgundies tonight. Just the right amount of freshness and tannins to bring out the complex flowerbed flavours. Smooth, long, warm eucalyptus finish. This is good. I rank this highly. Drink now

    March 23, 2019 - Deep, savory, rich and seductive. A full and serious wine that could warm you on a cold, damp night. If you like serious wine where the dark and complex flavors slightly overshadow the fruit, this is one for you.
