    April 10, 2020 - Initial nose a hint of vegetal. Iron and medicinal palate upon opening, time brought on the fruit and sticky tannins. Nose opened up too.
    Plenty of lift. great with Roast Chicken and Asian tempura vegetables.

    March 11, 2020 - I was surprised by this wine. I agree with a comment made earlier by Keith Levenberg who said that this tasted more like a cabernet sauvignon based wine. This is holding up well and showing a lot of tertiary character.

    August 30, 2019 - This was in a great spot. Glad we have another bottle. Will continue to keep an eye on it. Leather and cigar. Bit of menthol. Bits of red fruits. Very tasty.

    January 20, 2019 - Corked, underlying material seemed amazing however!

    December 15, 2018 - Deep red brick with some separation on the rim. Quite feral, meaty, leathery, touch of furniture polish on the nose. Roses and leather again. Gamey fruit on the palate with some iron and savory black tea notes. Fruit is fading but quite good with meat as it still has good length and some tannins. Good acidity still and more than medium long on the finish. Cork looked in very good shape and has been a well stored case. Very complex and at this price amazing QPR. Drink up but very interesting and celebral!
