    October 11, 2019 - The cork was solid and came out whole. 20-30 minute decant and the wine was SPECTACULAR! Cigar box, dried fruit and a hint of menthol on the nose. Still had tannins and fresh red fruit on the palate. Slight browning around the edge showing it's age.

    May 19, 2019 - Probably would have been better earlier. (Inherited the bottle).
    Body was a bit thin. Flavour of black currant (cassis) and tobacco. Still, not unpleasant.

    May 11, 2019 - The fill was into the neck and the cork was sound; decanted about 30 minutes prior to service. A deep garnet core, with some hints of bricking. Notes of dried plums, cigar box, leather, and hints of black truffle. Medium bodied, with a bit less opulence on the mid-palate compared to more recent vintages, but good balance, depth and focus. This greatly exceeded my expectations, and was significantly better than bottles we consumed nearly 10 years ago!

    August 27, 2018 - Wrong aging prediction will be great for another 2 years

    Need at least 30min to open up.
