    August 3, 2019 - Our main course wine with Kentucky Bourbon chicken skewers, Rosemary potatoes in smoked olive oil with snap peas & green beans straight out of garden.

    The nose reveals, ripe; blackberries, dark cherries, blue fruit heaven, slightly stewed plums, creamy, black raspberries, strawberries on the high nose and glass edges. Sweet tarriness, anise to black licorice, dry stones, crushed, dry rocks, medium, dark spice, savory, grilled meats, underbrush, limestone & sandstone minerals, steeped tea with beautiful florals of dark red, blue and violets.

    The body is round, lush and medium full. The tannins are rounded & well resolved with baby teeth. The structure, tension, length and balance are somewhere around the top of the bell curve with another five years of life ahead. It’s gorgeous as it slides over the palate. Ripe; blackberries, dark cherries, blue fruit heaven, slightly stewed plums, creamy, black raspberries, raspberries & strawberries. Mid red cola, sweet tarriness, anise to black licorice, dry stones, crushed, dry rocks, medium, dark spice with just a touch of heat, savory, smoked, grilled meats, dry tobacco, well worn, softened leather, underbrush, limestone & sandstone minerals, steeped tea with beautiful florals fields of dark, red, blue, violets and soft lavender. The acidity is like a warm, river palate dip. The ripe, juicy, elegant, well balanced finish is delicious and persists a few minutes with excellent florals on the long set.

    June 16, 2016 - A Night of Truly Diverse Wines (Newtown, Sydney): Straightforward and true to form, with a nose of sweet red fruit and a raspberry-dominated palate. Easy drinking, if a touch one dimensional.

    May 1, 2016 - No surprises here; this is smooth,m easy going, local, but polished, but the cool vintage suits this domaine likes mourning becomes Electra, it adds a freshness, that the Janasse-wine sometimes lacks. Very nice bottle, mature, but no hurry, lots of primary fruit available here.

    May 4, 2014 - Very ripe, a little cough-syrupy initially, calms down a little with time. A big CdP, and I'll wait a couple of years on the other bottle though I'm not sure which way it will go.
