    September 25, 2022 - Deep Garnet that appears cloudy.
    An intense black currant leaf on the nose gives up some redcurrant and underbrush.
    A marked acidity on the attack, the fruit just manages to balance with ripe bright berries, more red-orientated than black. A very grippy texture that morphs into a coarse, burly tannin. Whilst the wine has a muscular feel, it feels a little underripe, similar to a feel of dissolved CO2.

    September 19, 2022 - Nice earthy dark aromas, but palate shows structure dominating the fruit. While highly drinkable and offers some nice complexity the wine is firm and somewhat drying at this stage.

    September 12, 2022 - Wonderful nose, dark and masculine, forest floor, really in the best of Nothern Medoc (St.Estephe/Pauillac) style. Tannins fully resolved. Mid weight and precise. Perfect wine for a meat dish.

    August 27, 2022 - I've opened one of these annually for our anniversary since 2003. This was by far the densest, compared to previous bottles. Cigar box and leather dominate the smoky dark red fruit and licorice. Intense attack persists into a long finish. Great wine. A blast from the past, I see it was purchased from WineCommune.

    August 14, 2022 - Outstanding showing. Popped to check for flaws, set aside for 30 minutes and then consumed over two hours. Fragrant and classic Bordeaux nose with loads of cedar, tobacco, and underbrush. Fully mature on the palate with earthy and loamy flavors and just a hint of dark fruit. The texture is incredibly soft and smooth with not a hint of tannin. Drink now for a mature showing.
