    October 13, 2019 - Eye: deep dark ruby color, long legs in the glass. Nose: forward red fruit, cherries and berries, herbs, hint of smoke. Palate: crisp, full bodied, nice fruit, well balanced, medium to long finish.

    May 26, 2019 - My Grade: EX-. Deserves a more detailed note, will have to re-visit. Very Bdx left-bank on the nose, more southerly, warm-climate on the palate. Well-made, big, jammy black and red-fruit, smooth tannins, great structure, long, juicy finish, delicious even with noticeable heat. Should improve over next 3-5 years.

    March 3, 2019 - A good blend with palate recalibrating acidity but not amazing, happy to take a back seat to flavoursome food

    February 17, 2019 - Dark purple color. Left Bank Bordeaux style blend. Plums, licorice and we stones, and a creamy finish.
