    November 18, 2019 - Rich fruit, dense, concentrated. Red and black berries, black currant pastille, licorice, campfire, and dried herbs. Toes the line of being over ripe, but is held in check by juicy acid, a bit of iron tang and a bracing bitterness (YMMV). Appealing finish with playfully rustic tannins, although just a bit fatiguing.

    November 2, 2019 - Dark maroonish purple. Nose of strawberry with a hint of must. Sour and tarte on the tongue leaving the scent of strawberry with some anise. Smooths out with air with nice integration.

    July 28, 2019 - Nice nose - warm vintage shows thru with borderline jammy red fruits. Some game and bacon fat as well. Floral sweetness. Agree with the poster who mentioned the nose outshines the palate a touch, but still plenty to enjoy there as well. Medium acidity, med tannin. I'd buy again.

    July 25, 2019 - Second of two bottles. Not much better than the first.

  • Dave Dewar Does not like this wine:

    May 30, 2019 - First of two bottles. P&P. Dark ruby, fast legs. Aromas of horse sweat, red fruits, licorice all-sorts, chocolate, nuts. Flavours of raspberries, raisins, earthy. M body, M-H acidity, XD, M tannin. Alcohol was only 13.5% but came through strong at times. M-L finish of citrus pith. Would not rebuy. Looking at the many positive comments here, possible bottle variation?
