    March 18, 2020 - Pale ruby. Aromas of tomato leaves, tomato puree, blackberry, and some rosemary and cloves. Structured tannins, with cherry and tomato flavours, thyme, some meat stew, and a slightly tar smoky end. A pretty long finish. Nice!

    January 25, 2020 - From a bottle opened last night.

    Cool menthol is most prominent, with red and black fruit in the background.

    Pretty tasty, albeit not overly complex. Light-bodied. Not bad, but I just tried a couple 2016's, both of which are tough acts to follow for this wine.

    December 28, 2019 - Really good value for money - not a lot to add to my other ratings - this is solid 90

    November 23, 2019 - We had the wine as one of the last ones in a larger drinking session - as always the wine is living up to expectations - this is really nice and well balanced not a very complex wine - so happy to give solid 90.
