    May 24, 2021 - Still holding up, I am surprised at the longevity of the vintage as a whole. How much longer is a matter of speculation. This is drinking straight from the bottle.

    February 28, 2020 - For a bad vintage great wine, as indeed always.

    March 2, 2019 - What a nice surprise. We enjoyed it with my birthday dinner of polenta and wild mushrooms, caesar salad, and a surprise dessert. It’s spicy, fruity, and herbal, all in a very pleasant low alcohol package (12.5%). I’m glad we have another three bottles.

    July 29, 2017 - I'd already planned to open this to accompany lamb with friends for dinner, when by coincidence the Barton family and their wineries are featured in this month's Decanter magazine. Opened and decanted for 2 hours, this is now fully mature. Colour is deep crimson, with a hint of browning as it was decanted. Earthy nose, but still good blackcurrant fruits, leather, licquorice. To me, this is exactly as I would want a decent 20 year old St Julien wine to be. Slipped down rather too easily, could have drunk more, but don't have any more of this vintage. Beautiful.
