    November 11, 2019 - I was a little surprised how underwhelming this wine was. It seemed ripe and close to be passed its prime even thought this bottle was properly cellared.

    October 24, 2019 - Fresh. Notes of cherries, raspberries, earth and some florals.Finishes with a hint of sweetness. Overall a juicy pinot which went well with the Peking duck and smoked pork collar.

    October 11, 2019 - Friday night casual drinks in the neighbourhood. Tasted blind.
    Appearance is clear, medium intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of scented wood oak, saline and stony minerality, brambly dark fruits, some florals, and dried meat with more air. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium+ alcohol (14%), chewy medium+ tannins, medium+ body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of dark spice, dark red cherries, dark red plum, brambles, earthy stony minerality. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Solid stuff. New World but balanced and nicely aged. Just lacks some oomph and excitement towards the back-palate. I was guessing 2009/2010 NZ Pinot Noir maybe Felton Road from Central Otago? Or Dry River from Martinborough?
    Tastes a bit older than 2014 would suggest. Drink and enjoy over the next 4-5 years. Doesn't need much more than that. Screw-cap.

    August 9, 2019 - Opened. Like the screwcap. Medium red. Lovely red fruited nose; medium weight on the palate. Drinking very nicely. No reason to wait.

    March 3, 2019 - Unscrew and pour, consumed over 2 hours. Nose: Medium-plus expressiveness, raspberry, cinnamon, iron, and bacon fat with hints of smoke and cocoa powder. Palate: Medium bodied, sweet red fruit - raspberry and cherry - and Asian spice attack, a little hint of bacon fat smooths over the spice through the mid-palate, flavors persist nicely thru the back-end where earthiness and minerals appear. Finish: Medium length, 30-45 seconds, showing spicy dark red fruit, earth and minerals.
