    July 9, 2019 - This is really something; vertical, cool, dry, chalky, well structured. Impressive, will be interesting to see how this develops. 91+

    July 19, 2018 - PnD 1/2 bottle let air for 90 mins.

    Clear medium ruby.

    Clean on the nose. Medium intensity. Plum red currant blueberry raspberry touch if sage tobacco and toast. Still developing.

    Dry. Medium acidity. Medium tannin. Medium alcohol. Medium body. Medium intensity with flavours of plum cherry red currant blueberry sage tobacco and toast.

    Drink now and over the next five years.

    Medium finish. Good. Had more depth and complexity with previous vintages. Interesting but not a re-buy for the price.
