    June 22, 2020 - Decanted an hour ahead and classically paired with roast beef, just excellent. Deep plum colour, great balance of wood and fruit flavours. It had a depth suggesting that it would keep for longer without anything bad happening, but I think the balance is such that it's unlikly to improve further.

    April 12, 2020 - Brick colour with tinges of brown, blackcurrant aromas and fruit, quite lovely and long. Decanted 15 minutes before drinking it improved for 30 minutes but seemed to fade a little within the hour. The little that was left has not survived overnight. I would think this wine should be drunk within the next year or so. Perfect with roast lamb as you would expect.

    April 8, 2020 - Bell pepper nose, later on cassis, ashes, forest floor; very balanced on the palate, herbs and spices; some eukalyptus and mince; tannins completely resolved; seems to be at peak now; medium long finish; superb claret

    March 29, 2020 - I see I've been writing tasting notes on this case since 2007 and it has never disappointed. This is my penultimate bottle and it is still superb. I can't believe it will be so good for much longer, but who knows? Dark plummy colour. The nose is beautiful, plummy, cinnamon, spice, leather. The palate is smooth and silky, forest floor, aniseed, vanilla. Finish rich and long. Wonderful.
