    January 24, 2022 - Tight. Needs more time in bottle
    Some cigar box notes, some green peppers, very closed off
    Cassis notes
    Silky texture with still some grip. But not very giving at the moment

    January 21, 2022 - Clear, medium- ruby with medium bricking at rim.

    Closed on the nose with mere suggestion of cassis, vanilla and herbal tea wrapped around a red and black cherry core.

    Wildly powerful acidity, chalky tannins and warm alcohol as the wine hits the palate.

    Subtle flavours of game, barnyard, earl grey tea and sweet fruit. Excellent length.

    Drink 2026-2041

    November 6, 2021 - very similar to my 2017 note

    from well stored stored bottle purchases en premier

    "lovely and intense purple hue
    aromas if earth, smoke then cedar and red fruit
    Palate seemed conplete, with blackberry and slightly tart red fruit carrying through the finnish with light tannic grip at the end
    I did not expect it to be lovely out of the bottle but went with it and only improved
    5+15+17+7"

    again surprisingly enjoyable without decant

    I have had a few times from others and found decant seemed to lessen the fruit (not sure if that is a storage issue or effect of decant)

    October 30, 2021 - Still youthful with bright dark fruit and med tannin. Decant for at least an hour or save.
