    August 14, 2018 - No decant... aromatics are still a touch subtle. Lots of herbs so much so kind of reminds me of Languedoc garrigue. It's got a massive mouthfeel and body with a finish that comes in two waves and is very long which only goes to support the wines quality.

    For me the aromatics will improve (think ageing like a Cornas) and it has a while to hit it's sweet spot. The body and fruit is concentrated and oozing with quality, just needs to come together.

    Look at this again in 2020...

    April 2, 2016 - Complex nose, dark and red fruit, smoked meat, spices, hints of floral notes, but also a slightly unpleasant impression of burnt rubber. On the palate quite tight and drying - there is good fruit, a very attractive herbal character, great freshness, but a slightly bitter finish. Long and powerful finish. I would give this a couple of more years in the cellar, but I am not convinced. 88-90+(+?)
